dog vase 1875 or so

Chelsea Keramic Art Works. Vase, 1875-1880. Glazed earthenware, 8 x 6 1/2 x 2 1/4 in. (20.3 x 16.5 x 5.7 cm). Brooklyn Museum, Gift of Mrs. Charles Messer Stow, 53.257.2. Creative Commons-BY
This 1875-80 vase by designer Hugh C. Robinson for Chelsea Keramic Art Works is actually blue.  I'm glad the image is in black and white though, because it points up the high quality of the relief figure.  It's a solid furry dog in the long grass - mouse hunting perhaps?
