Rockingham, in the United States, is a pottery with a brown glaze that resembles tortoiseshell. It was made from 1840 to 1900 by many American potteries. Rockingham is also the name of a pottery in England in Swinton working from 1745 to 1842. Other types of ceramics were also made by the English firm, but the name Rockingham was used by collectors for any of the brown glazed pottery made in America. Some of Rockingham's most famous pieces had relief-molded designs including hunt scenes. Animal sculptures and historical figures were also made.
