A late 1930s model for the Nelson McCoy Pottery Company. From an original Cope model the company would decide on what it's production purpose would be: TV lamp, planter, vase, figurine, etc. This model was never commercially produced. Sidney was designing the circular McCoy logo at this same time (the late 1930s) and this could very well be the first time we see him use it!In pic 3 above we compare the single letter found on this sculpture with one of his earliest logo designs. Original McCoy models are quite rare. Online you can find close-up images of Sidney's panther model. Images of the bottoms confirm they were constructed by the same potter. Both have rough-cavernous interiors, but most notably, they both have sharp base edging and a visible added layer of outer "skin" (pic 4 above). And compare the ears to the panther and other of Cope's horses (identical).

Identify it as Sidney's, not Leslie's. There are some within the McCoy pottery community who refuse to believe that this horse is a previously-unknown piece of McCoy pottery.
Let alone Sydney Cope's finest work and, what-could-very-well-be, the single most-important piece of McCoy pottery ever created. Prior to this discovery, we believe that the Cope panther model was the finest and most important piece of McCoy pottery. Here, we have an almost identical same-size animal sculpture, same glaze, same bottom construction and signed with a circular M logo. The family of potters who created McCoy's circular M logo who were obsessed with white horses.
