This elegant Galloway vase is neoclassical. The shape is a modern take on ancient forms with a narrow bottom that curves upward. Unlike the ancient Greco-Roman urns, it has a sheer monochromatic turquoise glaze with flecks of a golden brown.

The Galloway Terra-Cotta Company of Philadelphia made this vase c. 1920. Although little is known about the manufacturer itself, it is clear that Galloway pieces were very popular in America at the turn of the 20th Century. The company started c. 1810. The earliest surviving published reference to Galloway is from 1876 when they won the Philadelphia 1876 exposition, the Chicago exposition, and the St. Louis Exposition. During that era, Galloway was one of the premier pottery companies in the United States. Interestingly, Galloway worked on Grand Central Station. Unfortunately, that work has since been torn down. Likewise, the company is no longer in existence, likely taking an irrevocable hit during the Great Depression.
