Rookwood pottery was made in Cincinnati, Ohio, beginning in 1880.
All of this art pottery is marked, most with the famous flame mark. The name and some of the molds were bought by a collector in 1982. In 2004, a group of Cincinnati investors bought the company and 3,700 original molds, the name, and trademark.
Contemporary pieces are being made to compliment the dinnerware line designed by John D. Pieces are marked with the RP mark and a Roman numeral for the four-digit date.
Mold numbers on pieces made since 2006 begin with 10000. ff3=4&toolid=10044&campid=5336649018&customid=rookwood&lgeo=1&mpre=
