History:Marblehead Pottery began as a small studio by Dr. Herbert Hall in Marblehead, Massachusetts in about 1904 and was originally conceived as an art therapy for patients being treated for a variety of nervous disorders. In 1905, Arthur Baggs became the director of the studio, and later in 1915, Herbert Hall sold to Baggs who then took over as owner of the Marblehead studio until it closed in 1935. The pottery to come out of the studio was very finely thrown, most often glazed with excellent matte and pebbled glazes in shades of gray, green, blue, yellow, brown, pink and purple. Arthur Baggs and his rather small staff of artists concentrated primarily on production art pottery of very high quality and specifically on the hand-incised and painted-on decorated pieces that to this day are among the most highly sought after pottery ever produced.
