This hard to find earthenware art pottery glazed and gilt decorated ewer or pitcher is stamped on base “Matt Morgan Art Pottery Co, 225, 8,” with a star stamp as well. This pottery company was started in 1883 by two men: Matt Morgan, an English political cartoonist, and George Ligowsky, the inventor of the clay pigeon for target shooters. The Matt Morgan Art Pottery Co. of Cincinnati made pieces inspired by Moorish designs and colors. Some of its other wares resembled Rookwood pottery, possibly because some artists worked at both potteries. Matt Morgan Pottery closed in 1884. The ewer or pitcher is in excellent condition with minimal imperfections, and light expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 6 ½” h x 6” w at the handle x 2 ⅜” diameter base.
Featuring period furniture, fine art, quality porcelain, silver and decorative accessories.
