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 exquisite footed and scalloped ovalesque bowl, shape #643, designed and produced circa 1925, is glazed in Cowan's "Dawn" glaze, a combination of matte lilac gray with an interior lined in glossy Persian blue.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with insignificant production glaze fumbles.
Marked at the base with faint "COWAN" inkstamp and handwritten shape number.
