Saturday Evening Girls
Jewish and Italian Immigrant American Art Potters of the Early 1900s
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.
