Victorian dog collars return to castle

Items to go on display

Two Victorian brass dog collars have returned home to Cardigan Castle.

The two collars were used to tether guard dogs outside Castle Green House.
One of them is engraved with ‘D G Davies, Castle Green, Cardigan. July 13th 1849” while the other has a fierce serrated metal edge.

The two collars, along with a metal roasting jack which also comes from Castle Green, have been loaned to the castle by Ceredigion Museum.

Castle historian Glen Johnson it was good to have the artefacts back home in the castle.
“I’m not sure what the relevance of the date is on the collar – it could be that the dog was a gift to David Davies, the owner of Castle Green,” he said.
The items have now been put on public display in Castle Green House.
