Q: I have recently inherited a Roseville vase and am searching for help to identify its authenticity and value. It’s marked Roseville, U.S.A., 75 – 7” on the bottom. Can you help me?
A: Roseville Pottery Company started in Roseville, Ohio, in 1890. The pottery opened another factory in Zanesville, Ohio, in 1898. The company went out of business in 1954. Roseville made several lines with molded flowers or fruit. Your vase is part of the Water Lily line introduced in 1943. Vases in several shapes were made, as well as baskets, bookends, bowls, candlesticks, ewers, a cookie jar, jardiniere and other pieces. Pieces were made with white, yellow or lavender flowers on a pink, blue or brown background. The numbers indicate the shape of the vases and the size, 7 inches. Value of your vase, $100 to $200.
