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 wonderful footed and channeled fan vase, shape #715-X produced circa 1926, is the smallest of Cowan's three Seahorse fan vases, and arguably the hardest to find. Glazed in Cowan's delicate April Green glaze, this charming vase features a pair of diminutive Seahorses supporting the vessel.
This sweet Cowan fab vase is in superb condition, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration.
Marked at the base with die-impressed Cowan logo and handwritten shape number.
