Overbeck pottery was made by four sisters named Overbeck at a pottery in Cambridge City, Indiana. They started in 1911. They made all types of vases, each one-of-a-kind. Small, hand-modeled figurines are the most popular pieces with today's collectors. The sisters made porcelain, redware, and figurines based on their surroundings because they did not want to make pottery copied from European and Japanese art that was popular at the time. The factory continued until 1955, when the last of the four sisters died.
