With all the reproductions of Roseville pottery on the market, new collectors are often confused on what is really antique Roseville. Many collectors ask us specifically what defines Roseville pottery as antique pottery. Many believe that any of the original Roseville pottery produced between 1900 and 1954, when the company went out of business, is antique pottery.

As with many other types of vintage collectibles, antique Roseville pottery continues to appreciate in value. Since buying antique Roseville pottery has been more and more costly over the years and in many cases represents a sizable investment it is important to know the quality of the antique Roseville pottery you are buying.

Here, here Enny! It's about time someone addressed this point. After seeing several of the Chinese fakes, I find it is easy to spot the phony Roseville from across the room because of the differences in surface quality. I find the real issue are the dealers that represent the stuff as genuine--either they are just dumb (often the case), or worse, dishonest.

This looks like a fake (Chinese) "Roseville" to me

While cruising ebay (US) today, I noticed item #260683092536, which IMO bears all the signs of Roseville fakes that are flooding the market these days: colors, shading and molding are not quite right, surface sheen is too shiny, and interior "aging" is wrong. This piece is listed at $485 USD. Take a look and see what you think.... This item is scheduled to go off October 30, 2010. Naughty
