Saturday Evening Girls

Jewish and Italian Immigrant American Art Potters of the Early 1900s


Gallery Lounge


06:00pm — 07:30pm

Designers and decorators of the most beautiful and collectible pottery, were situated at the overlapping of three forces in American History: The Arts & Crafts Movement, the early Women’s Movement, and the Anglo-Conformity Movement.

An outgrowth of a youth reading club in Boston, Massachusetts, the Saturday Evening Girls established Paul Revere Pottery which created a range of products from utilitarian children’s nursery plates to decorative museum quality vases before closing its doors in 1942.
