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.
This hard to find ashtray or vanity tray nicknamed the "Ship", shape #770 produced circa 1928, features a wonderful undulating form covered in Cowan's rich "April Green" glaze.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with production glaze misses and crazing present.
Faintly marked at the base with die-impressed Cowan logo.
H 2.75", W 4", L 6.25", base 3.5" x 4"
