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, which have never been reproduced.
This understated Cowan bowl, shape #565-B circa 1922, is glazed in Cowan's delicate and hard to find pink luster glaze.
This elegant Cowan bowl is in excellent condition, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration, with age-appropriate wear of the delicate luster finish.
Marked with the "COWAN POTTERY" inkstamp and shape number.
