Pottery moulds
Description: Reverse reads: "Code - F1; Class - Industry - Pottery Mfg.; Ident. - Pouring Moulds." The bowls on the table behind the potter appear to be similar to some make by Roseville Pottery. Roseville Pottery was founded in 1892 by George F. Young in Roseville, Ohio, at first making painted flower pots. In 1898, he moved to Zanesville, Ohio, into the former Clark Stoneware Plant building, to try and compete with nearby art pottery companies Weller and Owens. In 1900, they began producing the high quality art pottery line known as Roseville Rozane Ware. Roseville was the first pottery in Ohio to use a tunnel kiln, which greatly increased their production capacity. Roseville Pottery closed in 1954. View on Ohio Memory.
