Understanding Roseville Pottery - Sample Pages

ORDER FORM  |  DESCRIPTION | MORE SAMPLE PAGES

Beautifully illustrated history, based on new research...

Understandinging Roseville Pottery

... includes shapes, factory ads, rarities, and catalog pages not found in any other book! 


This new book includes any otherwise undocumented examples of Early Carnelian (above left) and Early Velmoss (above right), plus the entire July 1916 Price List from which their shape numbers were obtained (reprinted as Appendix A).
 

Many Donatello shapes are not shown in the factory pages. Those shown here (above left) were designed by Frank Ferrell--not Harry Rhead. They were made during the 1920s!

The controversial Cherub Cameo line (above right) appears to date to ca. 1916-1920. It may have been designed by Weller associate Rudolf Loerber--not previously linked to Roseville!
