We hope to see you at this year's Pottery Luncheon, an annual fundraiser benefiting the Macomb County Historical Society and Crocker House Museum.  Every year, creative table decorators compete to design tablescapes based around a theme.  This year's theme, "Tables Across America," will take visitors on a road trip across the United States.

History of the Pottery Luncheon

The Mount Clemens Pottery Company produced dinnerware in Mount Clemens from 1915-1987.  In 1999, the Mah-Nah-Be-Zee Questers, a local chapter of an organization focused on antiques, history, and preservation, held the first Pottery Luncheon to raise money for the Crocker House Museum.  It featured Mount Clemens Pottery on some of the tables, and one of the pottery owners was the speaker.  The proceeds purchased an antique bridal basket now on display in the Crocker House Museum’s dining room.  In 2002, the Pottery Luncheon was renamed in memory of Yvonne Leslie, a longtime Questers and Crocker House supporter. Over the next 19 years, the Pottery Luncheon supported Crocker House projects as well as local, state, and national programs.  In 2020, the Crocker House Museum took over running the event, and although the COVID-19 pandemic caused the event to be postponed for two years and held on a smaller scale, last year’s Pottery Luncheon raised over $4,000 for the museum.
