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, which have never been reproduced.
Cowan's "Lakeware" line – a group of 25 shapes produced in limited glazes – was introduced in 1930 as a marketing tool to introduce new dealers to Cowan pottery.
This generously proportioned ovoid vase, shape #V-71 circa 1930, is glazed in Cowan's "Peacock", a semi-gloss teal glaze, and features a subtly scalloped and channeled rim.
This beautiful Cowan Pottery Lakeware vase is in superb and unblemished condition, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration, with insignificant production glaze unevenness at the base rim.
Marked at the base with Cowan's die-impressed "LAKEWARE" logo.
H 9", D 5.25", rim and base 4"
