Originally formed as the Cleveland Pottery and Tile Company by designer, potter and teacher R. Guy Cowan, the Cowan Pottery Studio, which operated from 1913 to 1931, produced outstanding and technically extraordinary pieces, which brought international recognition to American Art Pottery. The expertise of the talented artists and chemists in residence allowed them to create distinctly modern forms and glazes during its short-lived existence that have never been reproduced.
This sophisticated little bud vase, produced between 1928 and 1930, is glazed in Cowan's delicate April green, and features an elegantly squared foot reminiscent of a column base.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking or restoration, with faint crazing present.
Marked at the base with die-impressed Cowan logo.
