Roseville pottery is introduced, explained, examined, and surveyed in this beautiful, sweeping guide. This revised and expanded edition includes new research on Roseville shape numbers and terminology, as published in Bassett's Roseville Prices. Over 860 color photographs illustrate the many artistic products created by the Roseville Pottery Company during its long life from 1890 to 1954. Arranged alphabetically, each line and its most typical variations are presented, and each has been meticulously researched and dated. The various ware types produced for each line are enumerated. Previously unknown Roseville products are documented--most notably Early Velmoss. Also included in the text are discussions of experimental and trial glaze pieces, a glaze and shape identification guide, a timeline of Roseville products, and an examination of the company's factory marks and artist signatures. Guidelines for building a collection and tips on collector's etiquette round out the presentation. Values are provided for all of the items displayed. Finally, a selected bibliography and an index are included.
