Roseville Pottery

This unique pottery was manufactured by the Roseville Pottery Company from 1890 until 1954. The original company was founded and the factory opened in Roseville, Ohio, hence the name. An additional plant was added to the operation around 1892. In 1898 the operation moved to Zanesville, Ohio. Clay from the Ohio region was used in the manufacture of their goods, the characteristic light yellow or tan color evident on the unglazed bottoms (or chipped/broken areas) of the pieces. The two plants in Roseville, Ohio were closed in 1910. The Zanesville locations were sold in 1954.
