Roseville Pottery

Roseville Pottery

In 1892 George F. Young established the Roseville Pottery Company in Roseville, Ohio. In 1898, due to the need for better facilities the company moved to Zanesville, Ohio and built a plant with all new up to date equipment. At this time Roseville began producing their beautiful Art Pottery. Some early Roseville patterns included Rozane, and Egypto. From the early 1900s to the 1930s Roseville added many new patterns to their line. Some of the most popular patterns were Donetello, Pine Cone, Baneda, and Futura. During the 30s and 40s, at least one piece of Roseville could be found in most American homes. After WW II the market for Roseville pottery declined due largely to cheap foreign imports. Thus, Roseville began producing pieces with high gloss glazes in an attempt to regain the American interest in their pottery. During this time Roseville produced patterns such as Wincraft, Pine Cone, and Bushberry--all with the newer glossy finish. They also established a line of kitchenware in an effort to compete with other successful pottery companies. In 1952 Roseville began making Raymor ( a dinnerware line with a modernistic design), in an attempt to compete with the popular melmac dinnerware that was flooding the American market. All efforts to stimulate interest in Roseville Pottery failed and in 1954, the Roseville Pottery Company was sold to the Mosaic Tile Company. The information for this brief history was compiled from the book "The Collectors Encyclopedia of Roseville Pottery, First and Second Edition" by Sharon and Bob Huxford. These books set the standard for Roseville collectors. They are well researched and contain a wealth of information. Other sources of information on Roseville include: "Collectors Compendium of Roseville Pottery, Volumes I, II, and III" by R.B. Monsen "Roseville In All It's Splendor" by Jack and Nancy Bomm
