Rookwood Pottery Price Guide

A Guide to Help You Identify and Value Rookwood Pottery

By

Rookwood Pottery ranges in value from hundreds per piece to thousand. The price is often determined by the artist's cipher found on each piece when present. These marks were used on Rookwood's desirable hand decorated wares, but will not be found on the company's monotone pastel production lines.

Kataro Shirayamadani, a skilled ceramics artisan, began decorating pottery for Rookwood in 1887. His work represents some of the company's most valuable pieces. A piece decorated by Shirayamadani sold at Cincinnati Art Galleries in 2004 for $350,750. Although valuable, most Rookwood pieces will not bring anywhere close to this figure at auction.
