Roseville Pottery - The Teens
A time of transition
The second decade of the 20th century was a time of change for America and the World. The Arts & Crafts Era was coming to an end in Europe and the US (around 1915) and there was the Great War. Companies such as Roseville would be forced to change in order to survive--and change they did. In this case, change was good and it laid the foundation for the bright future to come.
Along with the changes in decorating tastes there was the
not-so-little concern about the production cost of individual decorated
art driving prices beyond what the average consumer could afford.
Shapes and glazes were becoming the norm and decals were being used as
an inexpensive decoration on many of the lines produced.
Sometime prior to 1916 Roseville began producing Creamware which is a generic classification for a number of lines that were decorated mostly with decals. Some of the other lines in this category were Persian, Autumn and Gold Traced.The most common of the Creamware is Juvenile which was decorated with various child-pleasing animal motifs and nursery rhymes featuring sunbonnet wearing girls. Juvenile remained in production for many years. Another new Creamware line was the Tourist line which, as the name implies, was decorated with a touring car. Tourist is one of the true rarities for the collector.
There has been a typo in the description!! The cups largest circumference is 9.5", the actual large diameter is 3-3/8". Hope this has not messed anyone up! I apologize if so.
