Stainless steel Lag bolt for Lag Mount
Shutter dogs, also called tie-backs and hold-backs, are used to hold the shutter open against the house. While meant to be functional, shutter dogs are ofter used on decorative shutters to give the impression of working shutters.
This particular shutter dog is of French / Breton origin. Where American shutter dogs pivot around a central point like a lag bolt, on this European shutter dog the young girl's head tilts forward to allow the shutter to pass.
