The distinguishing charm of the Marblehead pottery seems to lie in the beautiful simplicity of shape and design, and in the soft richness of color…this pottery, which already occupies a high place in the pottery craft of America, will one day, perhaps, typify the best work produced by the country, for Marblehead Pottery is traditionally, and thoroughly, American.

Gertrude Emerson, "Marblehead Pottery," The Craftsman, March 1916
