Pewabic Archives

the collection

The Pewabic Archives contain thousands of vases, tiles, drawings, photos and paper files from throughout our history. A rotating selection of these items are on view in our second floor museum space for visitors to the pottery to learn from and enjoy. The museum is open during regular store hours.

Pewabic's archivist is able to assist in identifying historic (or contemporary) Pewabic tile or vessels, information about Pewabic's history, Pewabic tile installations, the Pewabic building, and more.

Valuation + Appraisal

We are unable to prove any valuation or appraisal services (ie "What is my piece worth?"). If you are looking for the worth of your piece you can try DuMouchelle's for appraisals of larger items or look for price comparisons on websites like LiveAuctioneers. On LiveAuctioneers you can actually look up Pewabic in past auctions to see at what price past auction items sold.
