DescriptionWell known for their animal figurines, this is an early example of that type of work from Blue Mountain Pottery. The glaze here is a more rare colouration, not typically available from catalogue. Later figurines are more typically coloured in the studio's well known black and green-blue flow glaze. This work came to the ROM in 2005 with a set of objects that had previously been displayed in the company's retail storefront before its closure.
