Best Buy and Sell Roseville Pottery

 Cherub Cameo collection has often been attributed to the Roseville pottery, but there are collectors who believe that the model was made by Weller and Owens. It's a great line with a base color fern mat and gold leaves that extend upward. white columns provide symmetrical faces of cherubs and white are placed in circles in relief on the coins. The result is an elegant collection that stands strong on its own or as part of the line of Roseville. There are umbrellas, window boxes, planters, platters and other ferns different shaped bowls. Depending on its size and condition, parts of the range up Cherub Cameo $ 100 to $ 1500.

In the book of Mark Bassett, Understanding Roseville Pottery Art, he outlines the rationale for the model Cherub belonging to Roseville. Most forms found in this line, and above the door, were created solely by Roseville Pottery at this particular time. In addition, the body of clay and glazes are very similar to those used on Roseville Donatello and Ivory color. The problem with the line of pottery Cherub Cameo is the lack or inconsistency of brands.
Cherub pieces were found with a number of plant shape (584) die-impressed on the merits of various flower companies. However, Roseville historically placed the figures indicating the size of the garden immediately after the form number. For some reason, all parts marked Cherub were found with the notation of size below the number of forms. To add to the discussion, it is interesting to note that Owens Pottery Pottery sometimes marked with its size below the number and shape. However, Owens shape numbers and sizes are italicized unlike visible marks on Cherub.
At this stage we are firmly in the camp that believes that the model was produced by Roseville Pottery Cherub. However, if you're like me, you might discover that you are more interested in this collection remarkable for the beauty it adds to a collection, or independently, rather than who did. The greens and golds are simply striking, because they play off each other and cherubs centered in the circles only add to the uniqueness of this line of pottery. And also, the mystery of its author for great dinner conversation and only adds to its charm
