Marblehead Pottery 1908-36 Gray Mat Cylinder Vase #13
In 1904 Herbert Hall, M.D. established a pottery program as an element in therapy for women with nervous disorders in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The pottery program became professionalized after the hiring of Arthur Baggs in 1905. This led to the establishment of a separate for profit enterprise named Marblehead Pottery in 1908. The Marblehead Pottery business was sold to Arthur E. Baggs in 1915. The pottery closed in 1936. Their pottery is difficult to find in any condition.
This is a perfect example of the arts and crafts movement. The color is a nice rich matt gray almost a light purple in different light. Simple design that speaks volumes. Displays perfectly from all sides and angles. The perfect size to fit in your curio cabinet. Perfect arts & crafts vase.
Exceptional vase in that it has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free from crazing and repairs. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. Dimensions are below.
Authentic and signed appropriately with the Marblehead symbol.
