The Saturday Evening Girls (SEG) Club and the Paul Revere Pottery (PRP), which grew out of it, began at the Boston Public Library in the 1890s. They were part of a social and cultural endeavor that grew out of the Arts and Crafts Movement, the growing Women's Movement, and the Settlement House Movement. It was founded by Edith Brown, Edith Guerrier and their benefactor, Helen Storrow. In total there were nine clubs for 4th to 7th grade children and high school girls that were each named for the day of the week on which it met. The pottery was the work of the older teens and young women of the Saturday Evening Girls Club. Artists included Albina Mangini, Frances Rocchi, Celia Goodman, Rose Bacchini, Sara Galner Bloom, Teresa Molinari, Tillie Block, Dina Harris, Ida Goldstein, Eva Geneco, Fannie Levine, and Lili Shapiro among others.Height: 2 1/4 in x width: 5 in.
