Found this huge pasta bowl at GW this morning. It's 13 1/2" in diameter and weighs a hefty 6 lbs. It's made by Robinson Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville , Ohio. All clearly stamped into the bottom. The tan background (pictures always show lighter) has a blue wheat sheath with a blue sponged rim. There are some dark stains under the glaze along with the "Sharpie" permanent marker price that refuses to clean off completely. This one appears to be older judging from the extensive marking and the double ring bottom. Probably from the 30's or 40's. -Mike-

From "More than McCoy".

Robinson Ransbottom, aka RRP Roseville Pottery Co., of Roseville, Ohio. RRP started in business before 1900, and has just recently gone out of business. They were one of American's great old pottery companies that made stoneware, spongeware, art pottery, vases, planters, birdbath inserts, dinnerware, cookie jars, etc. All RRP is collectible, especially now that they have closed. Their pottery is heavy, well-made, attractive, durable, affordable, and quite functional. RRP Roseville as it is commonly known, is not the same as the Roseville Pottery Co.; they were two separate companies, both formerly doing business in Roseville, Ohio, and both companies are now out of business.

    Thanks Jay I happen to have some I'll give it a go ,but I think it might have gotten under the glaze though the crazing.
