The piece of pottery shown at the left is a new
NOT a vintage Roseville piece. Comparisons to the authentic
dealer sign shown at the right will help you distinguish the fake from
My thanks to Ken and Dennis, owners of L.A. Finders Keepers and promoters of the Los Angeles Pottery Show, for providing the images of the REAL dealer sign. Visit them on the internet at www.lapotteryshow.com.
NOTE: The fake has a hollow pocket to support the sign. A
Roseville dealer sign is NOT hollow inside. The fake is also poorly
and crudely modeled. A photograph of the vintage piece appears in
my book Introducing Roseville Pottery.
Additional reproductions and lookalikes are illustrated in my books on Roseville.
