Originally formed as the Cleveland Pottery and Tile Company by designer, potter and teacher R. Guy Cowan, the Cowan Pottery Studio, which operated from 1913 to 1931, produced outstanding and technically extraordinary pieces, which brought international recognition to American Art Pottery. The expertise of the talented artists and chemists in residence allowed them to create distinctly modern forms and glazes during its short-lived existence that have never been reproduced.
This lovely flared vase with built in flower holder designed by R. Guy Cowan is known as "Morning Glory", shape #783 circa 1927.
Glazed in Cowan's delicate April green, this elegant vase features a dramatically flared rim and embossed, squared base.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with minor crazing present.
Marked at the base with die-impressed Cowan logo.
