About the Artist:
The Roseville Pottery Company was an American art pottery manufacturer in the 19th and 20th centuries. Along with Rookwood Pottery and Weller Potter, it was one of the three major art potteries located in Ohio around the turn of the 20th century. Though the company originally made simple household pieces, the Arts and Crafts-inspired designs proved popular, and Roseville pieces are now sought after by collectors.
The Roseville Pottery Company produced its final designs in 1953, and the following year their facilities were bought by the Mosaic Tile Company. Since the company closed in the 1950s, Roseville pottery has seen two distinct revivals: one targeted to Baby Boomers in the 1970s, and again in the late 1990s and early 2000s during the Mission Style revival.
This stunning three-piece set of mid-1970s Roseville Pottery includes a three-quart ewer, a three-pint bowl in which the ewer sits, and a one-quart pitcher. These revival pieces reflect the blue spongeware design used by the Roseville Pottery Company in the early 20th century. Their forms are particularly dramatic, beautiful and indicative of an earlier style. The spongeware design has been laid over a cream-colored background that allows the blue pattern to visually pop.
Each piece is in great vintage condition, free of cracks, chips or any other blemishes. The handles of the ewer and pitcher are solid. All three pieces are marked on their respective bottoms indicating they were manufactured in Roseville, Ohio
This three-piece Roseville revival set presents both functional and aesthetically pleasing household items that would look delightful in a home-style country bedroom, kitchen or dining room.
