This punch bowl, designed by a young Viktor Schreckengost and exhibited in the Cleveland Museum of Art’s May Show of 1931, foreshadows the demise of Prohibition in 1933. Made at the Cowan Pottery Studio in Rocky River, the Cocktails and Cigarettes bowl is a not-so-subtle reference to the two main vices of the Jazz Age.
