Roseville pottery company


Founded by J.F. Weaver in Roseville, Ohio in 1892, it became an early American art pottery source and a competitor to Rookwood. By 1901 the company had four plants and 325 employees. From 1904 to 1909, Frederick Hurten Rhead was Art Director, and one of his vases created during this time holds the auction price high record for American art pottery. The company closed in 1953, purchased by Mosaic Tile Company. Source: Wikipedia,
