Exceptional Cobalt-Decorated Stoneware Spaniel Bank with Coleslaw Fur, New York State origin, circa 1860, molded seated spaniel decorated with applied "coleslaw" fur on head, chest, back, and tail, brushed over in cobalt blue. Incised detail to teeth, muzzle, and chainlinks. Additional cobalt highlights to face, locket, chain, feet, and leg. Rectangular slot in underside. Recently found in New York State. Few blue-decorated American stoneware spaniels have survived. The fact that this example was made as a bank makes it truly remarkable. For a pair by the same maker in the collection of the Henry Ford Museum, see Webster's Decorated Stoneware of North America, p. 188. Approximately 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" section loss to underside (including part of slot), created when money was removed. Small chip to coleslaw near base on reverse. H 9".
