Cowan Pottery Comports, Pair, Green/Ivory, Circa 1928

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 marvelous pair of footed comports, shape #779 attributed to Waylande Gregory circa 1928, feature and undulating "curl of a wave" base design supporting a scalloped oval dish, and are glazed in Cowan's Special Ivory with an interior glaze of gorgeous April Green.

Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking or restoration.

Marked at the base with the die-impressed Cowan logo.

Each H 5", W 6.25", L 7.75", base 5.25" x 3".
