1929 McCoy Art Deco Tulip Bowl Vase

1929 McCoy Art Deco Tulip Bowl Vase


It is a perfectly spherical shape, its body formed by four pointed petals resembling a Tulip. Centered below each petal is a vertical form that acts as a pedestal foot at the bowl’s base. The bottom is marked with McCoy’s very first logo, an intertwined "NM” which stands for the company’s founder, Nelson McCoy. Below the mark is “USA” indicating the bowl’s country of manufacture.

There are several oddities about this bowl: First, the piece is sparsely spotted with stray clay bits from production, highlighted by areas where the green glaze has pooled, and thus, appears darker. Furthermore, there appears to be an “E” stamped into the bowl’s interior base, off-center, and again, highlighted by pooled glaze. Experts have neither been able to identify exactly what this stands for, nor seen any other piece of McCoy pottery that is also stamped.
