In the mid-twenties, the Cowan Pottery studio managed to develop a full commercial line of pottery with artistic quality of the highest standard. Examples of this are the flower figurines created by R. G. Cowan in 1924-1925 that enjoyed tremendous popularity with the public. Console sets, flower bowls, comports, candlesticks, vases, lamps, candy and nut dishes were very successful. By 1928, Cowan Pottery had grown to a staff of 35 people and was producing 175,000 single pieces a year ranging from unlimited stock designs to limited editions of sculptured pieces.
Here we have a smaller size star shaped comport #C951 with scroll feet. This is glazed in Jade Velour with the typical Cowan Mat Ivory glaze. Perfect piece to serve hor d'oeuvres.
Exceptional piece in that it has no damage, no cracks, no chips, no scratches to glaze, and free from crazing. Some minor wear to inside but nothing noticeable. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. No evidence of repair or modification was detected.
Authentic Cowan pottery. The white spots are studio light reflections. All images are original and un-edited.
