At the height of the arts and crafts movement, Mary Chase Perry (Stratton) with her business partner Horace James Caulkins founded the Pewabic Pottery in a small Detroit carriage house in 1903. The name “Pewabic“ refers to the Ojibwa word “wabic” translated to “metal”. Through the corroboration of the two founders, the company began marketing quintessential pottery to this era of history quickly outgrowing their original location. In 1907 the company moved to a larger facility designed by architect William Buck Stratton from where works of art landed in many prestigious building around the world. Early examples of Pewabic pottery are highly sought after and cherish by collectors today. The classic glazes resemble iridescent metallic hues not often found in pottery. This fine example is no exception, beautiful multicolored glazes which seem to radiate in light cover the entire piece. On the bottom both the impressed circle logo as well as paper label can be viewed. The vessel stands approximately 5” tall and measures 5” across the shoulder near the top. It is an excellent original condition showing no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. The inside is clean showing no residue from use. I will mention for accuracy and as common on these pieces for the bottom to be somewhat unfinished often showing kiln stilt marks as well as possible divots or chips from the manufacturing processes. These aspects in no way detract from the beauty or value of these extremely hard to find early examples. A wonderful find for many different collections! Thank you.
