Marblehead Pottery, Marblehead, MA 1904-1936
From Norman Karlson’s collection comes this vintage tile with stylized peacocks. It was never glazed so we assume it was left over when the pottery closed?? Marblehead’s logo is clearly incised on the back and Mr. Karlson affixed his label. 009-is the number he assigned to this pottery company, and the ‘x’ tells us he did not include this tile in his publication: Encyclopedia of American Art Tiles.
