Roseville Pottery Prices an Evaluation and Comparison of Actual Sales

Evaluating and comparing Roseville Pottery

We often get questions about Roseville Pottery prices. The most common question we receive is "Are Roseville prices falling as much as real estate; the stock market; and other similar investments."  While in general my comment is typically "yes prices for Roseville and also any antique and collectible have fallen but since about 2009 the Roseville prices seem to be stabilizing and for some patterns even seem to be increasing slightly".  I thought it would be interesting to verify the accuracy of my general statement by looking at some actual sale prices for identical Roseville pottery pieces we have sold over the last five to six years. 

When I say the same piece I am referring to the same Roseville shape vase in mint condition with similar mold, color and glaze.  In most cases, I have sale prices for at least four examples of basically identical pieces of Roseville Pottery. 

Below is a summary of recorded sale prices for Roseville pottery vases in similar shape and condition.  Prices are from actual sales recorded at www.justartpottery.com.  I recognize it is hard to draw conclusions from such a limited number of similar sales but I think the trends shown consistency.

This particular Roseville Sunflower vase has fallen in value a little over 24% since 2004 but has show stability in price since 2007.  In general I think we have noticed similar price trends for other vases, bowls, wall pocket and other Sunflowers forms.

The Roseville Baneda 603-4 vase has fallen in value a little over 10% since 2004 but has also shown stability in price since 2009.  Baneda has long been one of the more sought after Roseville patterns and it seems to have held it value better than most other patterns.  Other popular middle period Roseville patterns that also seem to have held value better than others include Blackberry, green Laurel, red Ferella, and Rosecraft Vintage and Panel.

The Roseville Bushberry blue vase shape 34-8 has taken a 11% drop in price since 2006.   That is consistent with the general trend we seem to be seeing the some of the better 40s floral patterns in the more sought after colors have held value fairly well.  A few such patterns are as green Apple Blossom, blue Bleeding Heart, blue and green Bushberry, yellow Bittersweet, green and blue Freesia, and green and blue Snowberry.

The Roseville Zephyr Lily brown ewer shape 23-10 has seen basically stable value since 2006.  Which again support the observation that later floral Roseville seems to be doing well compared to many other antiques and collectibles.

In future articles we look at additional Roseville prices as well as consider comparable sale prices for other American art pottery makers.
