    Pif was known for bronze sculptures and occasionally a vase with bronze coating. This one is ceramic, 18" high, the only one I see similar is a huge one sold at Bonhams (i'll post that link in second post) any ideas on who made this? here are pics of the vase:

    Oh my gosh. I really don't know if I like it or not. It looks like a drowning dog. I hope it isn't.

    Might help to get his name spelled correctly:Henri Honoré Plé.

    I'm not sure why it is thought to be by someone other than Plé?

    I am so glad to hear that. I thought it looked like an Irish setter in distress.
