Am I Chap? » Count of Gutentag
The self-styled ‘Count of Gutentag’, whose photograph was sent in by Sir Archibald Acheson, is in fact an elaborately designed, though poorly executed, doorbell.
A real count, doorbell accessory or otherwise, would not wear a cardboard topper, an ill-fitting brown jacket with the pocket flaps tucked in and no pocket square, paired with black trousers, a poorly furled umbrella, a clip-on bow tie, wellington boots and a pipe without any tobacco in it. He would also have a more interesting dog.
