Robinson Ransbottom Pottery

happylady1957February 25, 2010

Hello All,

Several years ago, I came across some pottery in a hardware store in Wiscasset, ME. The bottom has a "crown" type of marking, and is labeled Robinson Ransbottom. It is a dark mustard color,and quite heavy for its size. I bought a pie plate, and a medium sized bowl. I would dearly love more pieces, but understand the firm is out of business. Can anyone fill me in on this stuff? I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy all the different pieces that hardware store had, but was being cautious and wanted to make sure I loved it. I do!

I'm not familiar with the dark mustard color made by RRP but I collect the Sunburst pattern pots and they have no marks on the bottom. In the link below, it's the third pot to the right.

I have a few pieces of their Zephyrus line - a pitcher and a a few bowls. EBAY has a few pieces of RR from time to time .

Thanks to you both for your replies. I spoke with a fellow from Zanesville, who was very helpful. He said that RRP went out of business in 2003, and that pieces were sometimes available on ebay. He was familiar with the pattern, and said that it was manufactured toward the end of their reign. He also said that whomever took over the company was supposedly coming out with new pieces, but that they would be in more modern colors.

I guess I'll keep haunting ebay and yard sales. Thanks!
