Mountainside Pottery 1929-41 Arts and Crafts Geometric Pattern Brown Purple Serving Bowl
Mountainside Art Pottery of Mountainside, New Jersey. The pottery was started by John Kovacs in 1929 and closed around 1941. Kovacs was an immigrant from Hungary who had been a member of the Rutgers University Ceramics Club while a student. The pottery made Artware vases, figurines and bowls and used both a red and a white clay.
Here we have a huge 8 inch wide planter or bowl with a geometric pattern. Outstanding glaze treatment in a great blend of brown and purple on a red clay body. Perfect large bowl that can be used as a garden planter or as a pet dish. Outstanding piece in exceptional original condition.
Exceptional bowl in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no crazing. Excellent original condition. I cannot detect any repairs or restorations on this piece. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops.
