Cowan Pottery “Denset” Jar #924, Azure, Ca. 1929

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 rarely been reproduced.

Designed by Waylande Gregory as a lidded humidor or candy jar - shape #924 of the "Denset" line and produced circa 1929 - this example has lost its lid along the way, but still makes a wonderful open container or small cache pot, and is glazed in Cowan's intricate "Azure" matrix glaze, a high gloss combination of dark turquoise and light green.

Featuring a multitude of glorious Art Deco elements, with medallions depicting a stag, an archer and a pair of swallows. Condition is immaculate, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration.

Marked with die-impressed "COWAN", Cowan logo and handwritten shape number.

H 3.5", D 4"

Item ID: 1969
