“Scarf Dancer” Flower Figure w/Cowan Pottery Bowl, Ca. 1930

In 1925 R. Guy Cowan introduced his patented "Pavlova" flower figure. By the end of that decade the market was flooded with imitations and homages of the iconic design in every medium.

Here we have an excellent scarf dancer or "Pavlova-like" ivory porcelain flower figure from an unknown maker, which we've appropriately paired with a Cowan Pottery console bowl in Cowan's "Riviera" glaze combination of Special Ivory for the exterior, with an interior glaze of spectacular turquoise.

The eight hole flower figure is in excellent condition, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with overall crazing, an unglazed area at the tip of her right foot, and typical insignificant production flaws, bumps and inclusions.

The bowl is in excellent condition, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with crazing visible to the exterior, and insignificant production glaze pops.

Figure unmarked, but likely of German origin. Bowl marked with die-impressed Cowan logo.

Overall H 7.5". Figure H 6.25", W 3.5". Bowl H 2.75", W 6.25", L 12.5", base 4" x 5.75".
