Roseville Pottery Cuspidors

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

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 cuspidor marked with a shape number whose line is not identified below, please contact Mark Bassett. In addition, please let him know if you find a Roseville cuspidor with a finish not included in this list.
