Roseville Pottery Bowls

Roseville Pottery Information | Shape Families

Ashtrays | Baskets | Bookends | Bowls | Candlesticks | Compotes | Cookie Jars | Cornucopias | Covered Pieces | Cuspidors | Ewers, 1941-1954 | Fern Dishes | Flower Frogs | Hanging Baskets | Jardinieres | Mugs | Novelties | Pitchers | Tea Pots & Sets | Umbrella Stands | Vases & Ewers | Wall Pockets | Wall Shelves | Window Boxes | Miscellaneous
 

This shape family includes centerpieces, conch shells, and trays.

By 1916, Roseville introduced a systematic method of assigning shape numbers by shape family. Until 1936, the shape numbers were seldom indicated on the actual pottery. Many can be found by studying the shape lists in Bassett's Roseville Prices and the catalog pages in Understanding Roseville Pottery and Jack and Nancy Bomm's Roseville in All Its Splendor. 

For items that do not appear in those books, shape numbers can be identified only by locating an example marked at the factory with a pencil, crayon, or inkstamp notation. You can help! If you find a bowl (or related shape) marked with a shape number whose line is not identified below, please contact Mark Bassett. (However, please keep in mind that fern dishes and jardinieres can look like "bowls" to our 21st-century eyes. Don't forget to look under those categories first.)
 

IMPORTANT NOTE: The following shape numbers are in chronological order--not numerical order. If you do not find your number in the first group of shapes (ending at 479), please keep looking down the page until you get to the end.
