HISTORY

To date, no manufacture or sales records of Kent Art Ware have been found here in the USA or in Japan where, as was frequently the case, they may have been lost or destroyed during World War II. I have concluded, however, Kent Art Ware was produced and exported during the latter half of the Art Deco period, the 1930s to before Japan entered the World War in 1941. This is confirmed by documented production dates of high-end decorative ceramics Kent Art Ware sometimes copied.

Kent Art Ware was exported exclusively to the USA. It is virtually never offered for sale elsewhere. The only published photograph and description of a Kent Art Ware figurine is in Mary Frank Gaston's 1997 book, "Collector's Guide to Art Deco: Identification & Values".

A respected Art Deco antiques dealer in Britain was told by a highly regarded decorative ceramics authority KAW was created by a Noritake subsidiary as a less expensive alternative to Rosenthal and Hutschenreuther ceramics from Germany, and Vienna's Goldscheider ceramics. Kent Art Ware was indeed less expensive than high-end makers of decorative ceramics. The female head originally sold in the 1930's for a whopping $1.28. But were the ceramics manufactured by a Noritake subsidiary?

Hoping to establish the Noritake/Kent Art Ware connection, I phoned Noritake's New York corporate office in 2009. They were unable to confirm any past link to KAW. Instead, the firm suggested I call a respected china replacement company well versed in Noritake history. As it turned out, that company did not have information about Kent Art Ware either, but the gentleman I spoke with was kind enough to contact an expert within a highly respected Noritake collectors organization. The gracious authority on Noritake promptly sent me an email with what she knew. The email was a cut and paste of the original version of this page and I was right back where I started.

It was not long thereafter I added three figurines to my collection which I believe solve the mystery of who actually made KAW. The first purchase was a painted mirror-image pair of the "standing female with bowl". The female figurine in the center of the photograph is identical to the all white KAW "standing female with bowl" to her right. However, the painted pair is marked "Moriyama - Made In Japan". The second find was a "raring horse" figurine with a painted base. Though it is stamped with the Moriyama Pottery mark, it is identical to the all white Kent Art Ware "raring horse" except for the KAW addition of the column.

What finally convinced me KAW was made by Moriyama Pottery is the matter of paint colors. The skirts of the Moriyama female figurine pair pictured above are mauvy pink and the bases are light blue. The base of the Moriyama raring horse is the same blue. Is it only coincidence these exact same colors were used on the Kent Art Ware stamped "pink and blue female figure vase"?

According to the brilliant website Gotheborg.com the Moriyama Pottery was established in 1911 by Hidekichi Nakamura, and the Made In Japan red flower basket mark was used by them prior to 1945. Moriyama was an independently owned and operated company and not a subsidiary of Noritake. Having said that, and up to the Second World War, it was not uncommon for independently owned Japanese potteries to work with other potteries toward the economic goal of making Japan a major exporter of ceramic goods during the early Twentieth Century.

HISTORY IN A NUTSHELL

In the 1930's a Buyer in the USA contracted Morimura Brothers, Inc. (Noritake) to produce an inexpensive line of Art Deco ceramics named Kent Art Ware. Noritake, in the role of bilingual Broker, subsequently contracted Hidekichi Nakamura's Moriyama Pottery in Japan to produce Kent Art Ware.


APPEARANCE AND AESTHETIC MERITS


Kent Art Ware was offered in creamy white and sometimes in a brighter white. Some were cold-painted with gold accents, or fired partially painted in a limited number of colors, or far less frequently, fully painted. Color schemes occasionally varied and I have included examples of the same items with different finishes. To date, I have found only one example of a KAW figurine in two sizes. The Trojan horse head was available six inches tall and eight and three quarter inches tall.

As for aesthetic merits, I find the fifty or so pieces in my KAW collection to be uneven, and the same may be said of how well the greenware was prepared and painted prior to firing.

Some pieces are exceptionally lovely including the delicate female head, the female holding the bowl, and the highly stylized female bookends which were later reproduced by two other companies. The handsome ball vase with its striking fish decoration, the energetic stylized rooster, the delightful family of hippos, and the wonderfully whimsical stylized fish are all personal favorites.

My assessments aside, one must remember KAW was not produced for the well-heeled, but for average Americans who lived and worked in the period we know as Art Deco - people who took the trolley downtown to purchase something special for their fireplace mantel perhaps - something eye-catching the five and dimes stores and gift shops neatly clustered on their crowded shelves.

IDENTIFYING MARK

All Kent Art Ware pieces are stamped "Kent Art Ware" and "Japan" under the glaze which makes them extremely easy to identify. I have yet to see any variation on the rusty-red colored stamp.

COLLECTING KENT ART WARE

KAW may be found in all the usual places, but primarily on eBay. However, be it online auctions, yard sales, antiques shops, or charity stores, you won't find it anywhere as frequently as more familiar makers of art deco era decorative ceramics. Kent Art Ware remains rare, the result perhaps of limited quantities of a relatively small number of unique pieces having been produced over the brief lifetime of the brand. Then of course you also have to consider its survival rate over the past eighty to one hundred or so years.

KAW does have its advantages for the collector. It is not being reproduced and for the most part prices tend to be reasonable.

I am always happy to hear from visitors to this website. If you own a piece of Kent Art Ware not pictured here, or one that is pictured but in a different color or size, I am interested in buying it.

• MARCH 16, 2014 • A BIG KICK for any collector is finding the original price tag on an antique or collectible. Here's a perfect example - a Kent Art Ware female head originally priced at $1.28. I am confident this is the original retailer's price based on the style and aging of the tag. It has stubbornly stuck to the bottom of the piece since the 1930's, around eighty years ago. Typically, retail stores mark up their goods 50% making the retailer's cost for this head 64 cents. Subtract from that the distributor/wholesaler's profit and you are left with a large decorative ceramic made in Japan, crated in bulk, and shipped to the USA for approximately 40 cents each in US currency. Adjusted for inflation, 40 cents in 1935 would equal $6.83 in 2014.




• FEBRUARY 21, 2014 • HERE'S MORE PROOF Kent Art Ware was manufactured during the 1930s and before World War II. The standing draped female figure on the left, named Helga, was modelled by acclaimed British artist Jessie Van Hallen late in her 1920 to 1930 association with Wade ceramics of England. The draped figure is an example of more than seventy figures she created for Wade including a popular series of Art Deco ladies of which this is one.

Kent Art Ware's virtual copy of Helga is on the right photographed by Roberto DeJesus. And if one copy deserves another, the Kent Art Ware Copy of Van Hallen's Helga was in turn copied by an unknown maker of Japanese export ceramics as shown below.

• SEPTEMBER 1, 2012 • FROM TIME TO TIME I receive emails from owners of a Kent Art Ware item asking its value. Here is an example from Arlene and my response -

I have a 12" pink and blue female figure vase that I wish to sell, it has no cracks or chips. Could you give me some idea of a price? Arlene

Hi Arlene, 12" pink and blue female figure vase.....$37 date unknown...$76 date unknown...$48 September 12 2011...$70 May 12 2012 (damaged). Those are the prices previously paid for the same Kent Art Ware vase on eBay and other on-line auctions. For an undamaged piece I would currently set the price at $75 for a probable sale. Hope this helps, Dave

• AUGUST 24, 2012 • TODAY, WANDA KINDLY SENT along this email -

I have 2 teal rams. I was so glad to see that you had information on your web site about them. I cannot part with them as my parents got them for me when I was a child and so they are memorable to me. I was born in 1943, so I certainly can understand that they are pre-WWII. I will copy your information and put it where the children can find it and then they can decide what to do with them. Wanda

• May 12, 2012 • THE MYSTERY IS SOLVED for a man curious about his glass bookend by an unknown maker.

Hi David, I ran across your Kent Art Ware blog. I'm attaching a photo of a glass bookend that looks very similar to the female head bookends on your blog. Did Kent Art Ware also do works in glass? What do you think about this glass object. I'm assuming it's one of a pair of bookends. There was a remnant of a maker's label on the bottom, but that's about it. Thanks, Darren

Hello Darren, Your beautiful Art Deco glass object certainly does look like the Kent Art Ware bookends, but the maker of Kent Art Ware, Moriyama, didn't make anything in glass. Your art glass discovery was made in 1929 by Jules Vermeire (1885-1977).The work is an exquisite example of Vermeire's lyrical Expressionism for which he was widely acclaimed. It's a stand alone work of art rather than a bookend, and it was indeed later copied by Kent Art Ware. The documented timing of this expensive Vermeire creation, 1929, supports my assertion KAW was made in the 1930's.

I'm curious. How did your art glass find take you to my website if you wouldn't mind sharing. Dave

I collect Art Deco and found your website while searching "art deco bookends" images on Google. I saw your bookends which resembled my piece without the berries. Darren

• April 11, 2012 • RECENTLY I PURCHASED a look-alike figurine of the Kent Art Ware "standing draped female". (in each of the three photos the look-alike figurine is on the right) At first glance they appear to be identical except for the right hand, hair bun and the front garment folds. But there are additional differences as well. Two of them can be seen in the center photo - the lack of definition in the look-alike's pulled back hair and her thicker wrist and forearm.

I think this look-alike was made in a Kent Art Ware mold...a well worn mold that had seen better days...a mold with damage to the figure's hair bun and to her right hand which was rather clumsily repaired. I also think the factory who made the look-alike was the same that made KAW, Moriyama Pottery. Look at the word "Japan" on the underside of the look-alike. It is the same style, size, and color of the word Japan in Kent Art Ware's mark.

Once again, this points to the practice of one brand copying other brands figurines with impunity; whatever is selling well gets copied. I'm betting this was business as usual for many figurine makers the world over before the Second World War. At least in this Art Deco era example they didn't copy the brand name mark along with the item. Is there still copying of decorative ceramic items going on? In China most definitely. Elsewhere probably not so much in our time of vigilant corporate lawyers and punitive lawsuits.

• April 8, 2012 • JUST A REMINDER the website "www.AgateDiscount.com" out of The People's Republic of China is not selling Kent Art Ware. They are using my photos without asking and I don't know if they are a scam or, as they told me in an email, the site is for "demonstration purposes only". Hmm.

• April 1, 2012 • THE PHOTO ON THE LEFT shows a 1920's or 30's Art Deco thirteen and one-half inch tall female head by Goldscheider of Vienna. It sold recently on eBay. Next to it, courtesy of antiques dealer Becky Sweet, is a photo of the smaller look-alike ten and one-half inch tall female head by Kent Art Ware. Since Kent Art Ware was clearly marked there was no intent to trick buyers into thinking they were purchasing a Goldscheider product. These two ceramic heads prove, however, Kent Art Ware produced at least one Goldscheider look-alike.

MARK CHERVENKA is an expert and author (search his name on Amazon) on look-alikes. I emailed him in March of 2010 seeking information about Kent Art Ware and this was his generous response:

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your note.

My reference to Kent Ware imitating more expensive "name brands" is a general observation based on my own twenty plus year research of antique and art fakes, reproductions, and look-alikes. Look-alikes are of special interest because many times, through either ignorance or deliberate intent, the unmarked look-alikes are represented as their higher priced "name brands."

From your note, you are probably aware that a great deal of Japanese and Czech ceramics, glassware and small manufactured novelties such as toys made between the world wars--1919 to 1939--were made as substitutes or lower priced alternatives to better known brand names.

Czech glass makers made virtually identical copies of Lalique studio glass and perfume bottles; Japanese potters made virtually identical copies of German Schafer Vater risque figural nip bottles and Goebel figurines; Japanese toy makers copied German toy makers, etc., etc. Much like today, retailers went to low wage sources for products. In the mid-20th century, two of those locations were Czechoslovakia and Japan.

In researching possible inspirations of Kent Art Ware designs, be sure to check Goldscheider and Hutschenreuther as they made a number of lady heads. Also, were you aware there are a number of Czech pieces that use the same curly hair on similar lady head figures? The Czech pieces are matte glaze, not shiny glaze.

• DESIGN PIRATING between potteries must have been common in Japan during the heyday of export figurines prior to the Second World War. Consider these two examples. The female figurine is a knock-off of the Kent Art Ware "standing female with bowl". She lacks the definition and finish of the KAW original, she's shorter and she is holding a water vessel, not a bowl.

On the other hand, the horse is much more than a "look-alike"; it is a virtual copy of the KAW raring horse though there are differences. The legs of the horse and facial features are thicker, chunkier, not nearly as crisp or refined as the KAW figurine.

Whatever the history may be for both these figurines, each is stamped with this unknown maker's mark from the 1920's to 1940.

In November of 2011 what I believe was a knock-off of the Kent Art Ware female head with cold painted gold accents appeared on eBay. The suspect head was approximately 6.75 inches tall as opposed to the standard 10.5 inch height. Most importantly, there was no maker's marked. If it was a KAW piece as the Seller maintained, it is the first one I have ever seen in the smaller size and the first not clearly marked.


• UPDATE: I am happy to announce the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens has chosen to add my Kent Art Ware collection to their exhibits upon my demise. The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is one of only two museums in the USA dedicated to Japanese art, artifacts and culture. Located in Delray Beach, Florida the museum and gardens are a must see if you live in Palm Beach County or plan to visit Florida's east coast.


• MOST COLLECTORS have favorites and least favorites within their collections. I am no exception and I have already mentioned that I'm especially attracted to the white female head, the female holding the bowl, the female bookends, the ball vase with its fish decoration, the rooster, the family of hippos, and the stylized fish. In my opinion they are exceptionally good designs created by skilled artisans.

However, painting the curls and base of the female head gold was "gilding the lily". And what marketing genius turned the same head into an unalluring table lamp.

Then there is the draped standing female who has a misplaced center of gravity. Depending on the angle you look at her she appears to be in the process of falling backward.

Finally, there's the arch dog. What were they thinking?! Viewed from the front he looks to be snarling, his ears look like leaves left over from another ceramic, and his odd head doesn't blend stylistically with his hoop body.


• FEAST AND FAMINE. That's what it is like collecting Kent Art Ware. Sometimes many many months go by before an item I don't already have appears on eBay or other on-line auction or I receive an email with an offer to sell. So, I have also started collecting Moriyama marked ceramics that include the colors I call Moriyama pink and/or Moriyama blue.


• I HOPE TO LEAVE my one-of-a-kind Kent Art Ware collection to a ceramics museum or other appropriate entity in Japan or the USA. If you are connected to such an institution and would like to explore this further, please email me.


• ON A REGULAR BASIS I Google Kent Art Ware in quotes to see if anything new pops up on the Internet. As you would expect, this website is always near the top of the search results. Recently I was surprised to see a website named agatediscount.com using my photos to sell Kent Art Ware ceramics online. After a few clicks, however, the site stated it was for demonstration purposes only and no orders would be filled.


• IN 2010 FAMOUS ANTIQUES AUTHORITY, TV personality, and publisher Terry Kovel mentioned KAW in one of her popular widely syndicated columns -

Q: My all-white figurine of a rearing horse with its front legs on a column is marked Kent Art Ware Japan. It is 9 inches tall and looks very modern. When was it made?

A: You have a piece of Kent Art Ware (KAW), which was made in Japan in the 1920s or 30s. Kent designs are very Art Deco. David Eaton, a researcher who hosts a website on Kent Art Ware, thinks Kent wares were made at the Moriyama pottery in Japan. Several Japanese-made, Western-style figurines have been found that are almost identical except for their marks. Noritake apparently commissioned Moriyama to make Kent Art Ware, which Noritake then sold in the United States. Several Japanese companies have made special pieces in the American taste and never sold them in Japan. The name of the brand, Kent, probably was chosen to suggest an American or English company. Most Kent ware is all white. Some pieces are white with added colors on a skirt or leaf. Many resemble pieces made in the Deco style by major German and Austrian potteries. You have a piece of an as-yet-undiscovered collectible, so few people will know what it should cost.

• August 10, 2009

David, I took pictures of the bookend and a dog I just bought today. I about gave myself whiplash when I saw the dog because I had seen it in your guide. It has no chips or damage and just a little wear to the gold accents. I will retake the pictures and send them to you for the guide if you like.Gregg

• August 14, 2009

Hi! I just wanted to say thanks for your Kent Art Ware site -- I knew most of what little info there is, but I was happy to see a central place I can check back with as more info turns up! We got started with KAW because of a family piece; the "father" of the hippo family floated around my stepmother's family for decades and he finally ended up with me. She thought her father had bought it in the 30s in NYC but she didn't really know. We later added the rest of the hippo set, the horse w/ green details and a white version of that curly-haired ram. Someday I hope to start adding the modern Jonathan Adler pieces that are so similar!! Anyway, thanks again and I'll keep my eye on your guide and hope you're able to keep adding to it! Sarah

• May 4, 2009

I really appreciated all of the information on Kent Art Ware. I have a piece that belonged to my mother, and I was curious as to where it came from. It is a pair of chocolate rams 7 1/2 inches high with gold horns and beards. Thanks for the information.

• COINCIDENTALLY ON MAY 4, 2009, an eBay Seller in Indonesia linked to this site in his item description:

"This is just a great piece! Almost mid century in design but made during the art deco period. White horse with a teal mane, tail and hoofs. You can read about Kent Art Ware by clicking HERE. This measures 10 1/2 inches long and about 6 1/4 inches tall...."
