WONDERFUL PIECE OF ROSEVILLE OHIO POTTERY, A WATERMELON DESIGN CROCK, PRODUCED BY ROBINSON RANSBOTTOM. What a great looking piece of pottery. A perfect size for so many summer uses in the kitchen, deck, patio or what a great display piece! Classic style and design. This lovely crock measures about "4 1/2 in diameter at the top, stands 3 1/4" tall. Robinson Ransbottom created many different styles and designs of decorated stoneware crocks, such as this one. This wonderful crock is in very good condition, free of chips or cracks, a tiny loss of the watermelon rind detail, as shown in the photos. This beautiful piece of pottery has the old ink stamp mark on the bottom, "ROBINSON RANSBOTTOM ROSEVILLE OHIO. USA", which was used about 20 years ago. Robinson Ransbottom Pottery was a leader in the Roseville Ohio, Ohio Valley area, but they ceased production, having closed their doors after 125 years of operation. There are not many USA pottery companies remaining in operation any more. What a great addition this crock will make to your pottery collection!!!!!
