I have this piece of pottery that I was told was Roseville pottery and I was wondering if indeed it was Roseville and if it was, what pattern this dish is. Thank you!

It doesn't appear to be one of their's. Most of the Roseville pottery pieces I can find have Roseville on the base, and commonly have a floral decoration on the outer surface rather than this Greek Key motif.
This is probably of the same period - Art Deco - but a different manufacturer.

It has been a long time since I saw this mark but I am fairly sure that it is for Rookwood Pottery in Cincinnati.

They also helped with dating the piece because the XIX means that it was made in 1919. The other numbers are for the shape.

Aha, yes, Rookwood. XIX is the year mark = 1919

Rookwood Pottery Empty Rookwood Glaze Effect Vase?

Post by itzmichele May 20th 2015, 6:27 pm

Hi Everyone - found this little beauty at the Salvation Army thrift store yesterday for $.79. It's marked Rookwood, but I can't make out anything below the stamp. Any ideas? the form of the vase is similar to their #2112, and it's completely glazed on the inside just like the outside. The second stamp photo was manipulated in Photoshop to better contrast the stamp. Thanks!

Have to say that the uneven foot does look rather suspect to me, although I have only ever had two pieces myself. It isn't something that we see in the UK very often.

Under the mark there should be Roman numerals for the date and then a shape number under that.

It isn't possible to really tell from a photograph but it looks as if the base might have been skimmed with clay and a copy of the main Rookwood stamp added to that once it has started to become hard. However, you ought to be able to tell that better than me.

Well, there are roman numerals below it - at least 2 "x" marks, and I can't read the rest.

I just didn't think Rookwood put out pottery with imperfections like an uneven rim, so I thought if anything it might be a 2nd that somehow got out.

Rookwood seconds were marked with an "X", and I think I can make that out below and to the right of the mark and somewhat perpendicular to it. The Roman Numeral looks to me like XXI? which if correct likely translates to XXIV (1924), the only other option would be XXIX (1929). The base is indeed very sloppy and this would have only been sold as a second if at all. I think pieces like this were often acquired by Rookwood employees.

We have handled many pieces of Rookwood, and I can verify that this is indeed Rookwood Pottery from Cincinnati. The glaze is referred to as "Dip/Drip", and it was only produced for about a year, in 1932. During the depression, most of the decorators were let go due to floundering sales. The line was never given an official name, but according to the Rookwood master potter Ruben Menzel, he made these to "give himself something to do".

They are relatively rare and can command premium prices at premiere Rookwood auctions. Collectors love these. Good find!

Rookwood Pottery Empty Rookwood Vase, Albert Munson

Post by Johners2000 January 20th 2017, 5:02 pm

Hi, I have got this piece of Rookwood which I think I have correctly ID'd as 1901/2 - But I can't work out who the decorator was the closest i can find is Albert Humphreys but the 'H' looks more like an N or Z.

Turns out it was a M - so it's Albert Cyrus Munson.

Rookwood Pottery Empty My first introduction to Rookwood pottery

Post by Neil62 April 7th 2023, 8:41 am

Bought at auction recently in perfect condition and my first and only piece of Rookwood.
Hopefully it won’t be my last
Maker is Ed Dier made in 1923 vellum and the smallest size F.
If only all the pottery marks were as good and easy to read.
I know only what I have read on the internet but this is a beautiful piece. It was a bit of a bonus really because I bought it in a lot containing a Cream jug by Bernard Leach.
I am now on the lookout for other Rookwood pottery because this is beautiful.

Studio I was both amazed and shocked at both the clarity of the marks and the ease with a bit of research to identify almost everything about it.
