Roseville Ohio Pottery Information And Marks

Updated on April 19, 2020

Roseville Pottery Has A Long Interesting History

The Roseville pottery factory opened up in 1885 in Roseville, Ohio. Roseville Pottery is truly considered an American treasure.

The history of Roseville pottery is well documented and shows that the company was a great American company. The founders of the company were men by the name of George Young and C.F. Allison. The business itself got off to somewhat of a modest beginning, making general stoneware for the home. In 1902 the partners bought out an old stoneware factory in Zanesville Ohio and began making art pottery. The art pottery was fast to become popular, and much overshadowed the Roseville lines of pottery.The Roseville factory was closed in 1910, and all Roseville pottery was to from then on to be produced in the Zanesville factory.Roseville was one of the pottery companies that did not suffer too badly with the depression in the 1930s. This was due to the fact that they had long established many modestly priced lines of house-ware pottery, and the public could still afford Roseville products. Sadly enough the company would never see the prosperity of the mid-1900s and closed their doors in 1954. Roseville pottery went on to become one of the most popular American potteries to collect and continues to hold premium value on the open antique market.

      My wife was given for protection, the last Roseville piece her late father could get out of the house, before a MAD woman destroyed it. She, the MAD woman, destroyed many rare types of pottery. The one my wife was given, I ID'd on the Net tonight as a Zephyr Lily-Brown bowl. The ID numbers are 1/74-8". I am trying to gather intelligenc on this piece. I have joined another blog/blurb site to meet my goal. If anyone has direction on ID'ing Roseville without paying som e-man hard earned croners/Piasters/marks/pounds/etc. for information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You------------------------------------------------Mal Taillon (

      I have a piece of Roseville pottery that I am unable to date... I think it is very primitive.. On the bottom the hallmark is two roses, with Roseville Ceramics Inc. above and below the roses. There is also USA mark. This is a bowl, in a basket weave pattern, with a green ivy leaf border at the top.
