Here is a history of Roseville Pottery that we found online:
The company was founded by J.F. Weaver in
Roseville, Ohio, in 1890. It was incorporated in 1892 with George Young, a
former Roseville salesman, as secretary and general manager. Under the
direction of Young, the Roseville company had great success producing stoneware
flower pots and other practical household items. In 1895, the company expanded
by purchasing Midland Pottery, and by 1896 George Young had amassed a
controlling interest in Roseville Pottery. In 1898, they purchased the Clark
Stoneware Company in Zanesville, and moved the headquarters there.
In 1900 George Young hired Ross C. Purdy to create the company's first art
pottery line—Rozane. The Rozane art line was designed to compete against
Rookwood Pottery's Standard Glaze, Owens Pottery's Utopian, and Weller
Pottery's Louwelsa art lines. The name Rozane was created as a contraction of
"Roseville" and "Zanesville". By 1901, the company owned
and operated four plants and employed 325 people. Frederick Hurten Rhead was
the art director of Roseville between 1904 and 1909. He is associated with the
Della Robbia line. (At the time of writing one of Rhead's vases holds the
record as the most expensive piece of American art pottery: however, this is a
piece of studio pottery from Rhead's California period). Frederick's brother
Harry Rhead stayed on at Weller after Frederick left.
Frank Ferrell became the art director for Roseville in 1917 and was responsible
for creating many of the most popular Roseville designs. Among the most popular
designs created by Roseville are Blackberry, Sunflower, and Pinecone.
Roseville Pottery produced its final designs in 1953, and the following year
their facilities were bought by the Mosaic Tile Company.
