What is Newcomb College Pottery?

Newcomb College produced art ceramics in New Orleans from 1894 through 1941.

Newcomb College began offering classes in pottery in 1894, with their first exhibit in 1896. The pottery was created by and executed by young educated ladies enrolled in the college. During their production from 1894 through 1941, over 90 different students created approximately 71,000 total pieces of pottery. In the wake of hurricane Katrina, Newcomb College was officially closed as a separate entity, and absorbed by Tulane University. As the premiere manufacturer of art pottery in Louisiana, vintage Newcomb Pottery is highly collectible, especially to those who enjoy the arts and crafts style. The rarity of these pieces has led to high collector competition for the limited supply of examples available, driving prices of those pieces upward.
