SOLD--Durant Kilns Art Pottery Turquoise Bowl

0.00

A turquoise glazed art pottery bowl by Leon Volkmar for Durant Kilns, of circular form, with an octagonal rim which tapers down to a circular unglazed foot ring, the bottom of which is incised Durant and 1915, the year of manufacture. The turquoise blue color derives from ancient Persian pottery and the craquelure glaze is from Asian ceramics. This bowl has wonderful color and scale and would make a beautiful centrepiece. Durant Kilns was founded by Jean Durant Rice in 1910 in Bedford Village, New York. He hired Leon Volkmar to oversee production. The pottery made both tableware and artware. White faience was the earliest product made. Turquoise-blue and yellow wares were made later. Rice died in 1919, leaving Leon Volkmar to run the business. After 1930 the name Durant Kilns was changed and only the Volkmar mark was used. (Source: Kovel's).
