Roseville Pottery began with the 1892 acquisition of the J. B. Owens company, which had been founded in 1885 in Roseville, Ohio, by a group of Ohio businessmen including George Young, C. F. Allison, and several other Zanesville, Ohio businessmen. Many Roseville lines were a response to the innovations of Weller Pottery, and in 1904 Frederick Rhead was hired away from Weller as artistic director and created the Olympic and Della Robbia lines. During these times, Roseville made quality art pottery but was viewed as more of a mid tier line, reproducing the techniques of others for a wider market. However, it was Frank Ferrel, who served as Roseville artistic director from 1917 until 1954, who created many of the most popular and memorable lines including Pine Cone, and in 1918 at the end of World War I the "Roseville U.S.A." mark was first used. The Pine Cone line alone had over 70 individual pieces to collect, and colors included the most common green as well as lesser seen brown and blue. Floral lines were diverse and always popular, including Dogwood, Iris, Sunflower, Wisteria, Peony, Apple Blossom, Clematis, Bleeding Heart, Blackberry, and many more. Also, Roseville produced a fascinating variety of pieces including bowls, vases, wall pockets, jardinieres and stands, candlesticks, ewers, bookends, and more! There are many new and unknown patterns listed and pictured with over 400 full color photos and over 500 Roseville Pottery items showing all of the known patterns made. Several other people have produced excellent books but none as complete as Jack & Nancy Bomm's, who researched Roseville In All Its Splendor for over 5 years. They managed to access and photograph a nearly complete collection of Rosevile's catalogue pages which even reveal the item number (get a magnifying glass) of each displayed piece.
