Floor vases appear in  the "Vases" family.

Umbrella stands were a Roseville staple from the start. Between 1900 and 1916, some examples were marked with impressed or shape numbers. 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 an umbrella stand or sand jar marked with a shape number whose line is not identified below, please contact Mark Bassett.

In 1936, Roseville began marking pieces with permanent (either impressed or raised) shape numbers. Examples from older lines that bear impressed or raised shape numbers were made in 1936 (or later).

772-14" = Primrose (there is also a Primrose 772-14" vase)

In 1947, Roseville introduced the first of several new shape numbering systems, none of which were as systematic as the system used between roughly 1916 and 1946. By that time umbrella stands were no longer a standard Roseville offering. The following Florentine shapes are believed to date to about 1954.

297-14.5" = Florentine
298-18.5" = Florentine
299-14" = Florentine
