Volume 5  Issue 4

The Ransbottom brothers had alot of experience in pottery. Frank learned from his father, Alfred. His father operated the Bluebird Pottery on farms in Perry and Muskingum Counties in Ohio. Frank's brothers, Ed and Mort, held important positions at Roseville Pottery. The Ransbottom brothers bought the Oval Ware and Brick Company in Beem City in 1900. Beem City is approximately one mile north of Roseville, Ohio. In early 1901 they began producing as the Ransbottom Brothers Pottery. Their production included stoneware jardinieres cuspidors, and flowerpots. They soon became known as the largest producers of stoneware jars. By 1920, due to the declining market for stoneware jars, they merged with Robinson Clay Product Company to become Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery. They were a maker of tile and brick products. Later their production changed to birdbaths, planting tubs, jardinieres with pedestals, large vases, urns, and strawberry jars. In the 1930's, kitchenware was added to their line of products. Their line of hand-decorated pieces were made mostly from 1947 - 1957. They recently acquired the Zanesville Stoneware Company in Zanesville, Ohio and are still in production today. Many people confuse Robinson-Ransbottom with Roseville Pottery. The Robinson-Ransbottom mark is an impressed mark of "R.R.P. Co. Roseville, Ohio", "RRPCo", or a crown. Don't make that same mistake!
