Artist Signatures on Rookwood Pottery

Marks or Ciphers Used by Various Decorators

By

The artist decorated wares produced by Rookwood can range in value from hundreds to thousands of dollars. These hand-decorated pieces are usually more valuable than the company's mass produced one-color production lines.

Artist decorated pieces often have the initials or name, known as an artist's cipher, incised or printed on 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.
