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.
These elegant and generously proportioned candlesticks, shape #529 circa 1925, are glazed in Cowan's rich Delphinium Lustre, reminiscent of carnival glass, and feature an ornate scrolled floral motif and scalloped base.
These dramatic Cowan Candlesticks are in superb condition, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration.
Marked at the base with Cowan's ink stamp and shape number.
Each H 3.5", W 4", L 6".
