Roseville Pottery got its start in 1892 in Roseville, Ohio. While the company eventually closed its doors in 1954, the pottery left behind continues to impress. With a focus on affordable, artistic pieces, Roseville was able to carve out a niche that attracted the everyday consumer.
Today, original Roseville Pottery can sell for a pretty penny. Here are some results from a recent auction:
• Wisteria (1933): $228
• Cherry Blossom (1933): $618
• Pinecone (1935): $293
• Carnelian (1926): $1,000
• Sunflower (1930): $358
• Dahlrose (1928): $344
• Falline (1933): $325
Thanks to its popularity, there are quite a few fakes and reproductions on the market. For this reason, you must take extra caution when buying Roseville Pottery. Some red flags include: glazing errors, low prices (generally under $50), and lightweight.
If you’re interested in starting a Roseville Pottery collection or adding to what you already have, keep your eyes open online, at local estate sales, and auctions. These pieces are available, but as noted above, don’t make a purchase unless you’re 100% sure of their authenticity.
