ROSEVILLE POTTERY


The Roseville Pottery Company was founded in 1892 in Zanesville, Ohio. The area offered rich clay deposits suitable for making pottery.

Although pottery collectors typically think of Roseville pieces as being floral designs, matte finishes, muted earth-tone colors, and modern shapes, such characteristics did not appear until the 1920s. The first pieces to have the Roseville mark impressed on the bottom of each piece appeared in 1930 and 1931.

The collection included here has been assembled by a Murray County native who, although willing to share his artworks through this museum, prefers to remain anonymous.
