Artist decorated pieces usually have the initials or name, known as an artist's cipher, incised into the bottom of the piece below or near the reverse RP mark. Pieces made by the most skilled of Rookwood artists are very desirable to collectors, so being able to identify them correctly is an advantage to both sellers and buyers.
Beginning in 1886, Rookwood added a flame around the reverse RP logo each year to mark the date. In 1901, Roman numerals began dating the company's pieces.
