J.B. Owens started his own pottery company in 1891. He built a new plant and started manufacturing pottery in 1896. The Utopian line was a high-glaze brown ware with underglaze slip painting similar to Roseville, Rookwood and Weller. Owens manufactured pottery for only 10 years and won critical acclaim but closed in 1907. The Utopian line is their most recognizable.
This particular Owen Utopian pot rests on 3 feet and is plainly marked on the bottom. The underglaze slip painting is very well executed and depicts a wonderful design of palm fronds that surround the entire pot on top. This is the perfect piece to decorate that florida room. Displays well from all angles. Just an exceptional example of the Owens Utopian line.
Exceptional pot in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Very very minor underglaze crazing on this wonderful piece. It may appear more pronounced due to the macro lens used for the photography. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Dimensions are below.
