I received my first piece of Roseville about 25 years ago as a birthday gift. It was my one and only “perfect” piece as I continued to receive Roseville gifts through the years. I’m very happy with pieces that have a small chip or crack because I know they were displayed and loved by someone. Unfortunately, last Christmas I dropped and completely shattered my perfect little vase and replaced it last summer with one that has a chip or two. The pattern is Bushberry.
In addition to the three pieces above, there are 3 candle holders (Snowberry, Primrose and Magnolia)…
…a console, a sconce shell and a creamer (White Rose, Magnolia and Zephyr Lily).
I love having these beautiful pieces to display throughout my home at different seasons of the year. I enjoy this collection particularly because it is a product of Ohio. The company was in business from 1890 to 1954, starting in Roseville, Ohio and moving to Zanesville, Ohio in 1898. I’m also attracted by the 1930s-40s style and muted colors.
The Robert Fabe signed print over the mantel is called March Morning and shows a street in the Mt. Adams suburb of Cincinnati. (Click picture for close-up) It’s not where I lived as a child but looks very much like my old neighborhood. I sure hope we don’t have that much snow this year in March.
