Owens Pottery 1896-1907 Utopian Tulips Bottle Vase #1069
J.B. Owens started his own pottery company in 1891. He built a new plant and started manufacturing pottery in 1896. The Utopian line was a high-glaze brown ware with underglaze slip painting similar to Roseville, Rookwood and Weller. Owens manufactured pottery for only 10 years and won critical acclaim but closed in 1907. The Utopian line is their most recognizable.
This particular 8 inch tall Owens Utopian vase is a beautiful bottle style vase. The underglaze slip-painting of the flower and leaves are exceptionally well done. This line is getting more difficult to find so now is your chance to own a piece of pottery history.
Exceptional vase in that it has no repair, no restoration, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. Minor underglaze crazing on this wonderful piece. It may appear more pronounced due to the macro lens used for the photography. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. The white spots are from studio lights.
