Rookwood pottery,

American artware. Made in Cincinnati by one of the earliest American pottery firms (est. 1880), it achieved an international reputation. The ware exhibits a range of full, rich colors and textures and superior glazes, both mat and lustrous. In addition to the usual potter's mark, each piece is signed individually by the artist who modeled or painted it.
