Although I’ve seen Marcia of California pieces many times at the thrifts and flea markets, I just haven’t picked any of the pottery up yet. The reason is that many of the pieces of this California Pottery are larger items such as lazy susan chip and dip sets, cookie jars or non-useful items like big ashtrays. So the thumbnail for the main gallery is just a screengrab of their logo for now.

One of the interesting things about this company is that the owners weren’t named Marcia in any way (not that I could determine anyhow). According to Chipman, it was owned by a George Siegal and his sons and they produced uuite a large selection of items starting in the 50s and probably continuing into the 70s.

One very interesting thing is that now that we have googlemaps, you can look up the exact address that Chipman lists. And in fact, this pottery used to exist very close to where we live! Also, interestingly it is just to the southwest of the Cal State LA university campus, on the section of Eastern above the 10 Fwy. I’ve been wondering if they had some sort of affiliation with the university.

Most items I’ve seen are marked in-mold with “Marcia of Calif” and sometimes a model number. As said, the primary items seen are typical, brightly colored, gaudy California pottery ashtrays and chip/dips. Some are nicer looking, especially the 50s atomic shaped items. They apparently also made figurines though I don’t see those turn up as much.

Note: We've tried to provide as much info as possible on this pottery maker or artist. For further info, you may want to research the items they have on Ebay listed under this name. We've tried to hand tailor the searches below so they will bring up the most accurate results. If there are no results, it will list general California pottery.
