Overall, we have seen a substantial increase in the number of searches for Roseville Pottery in October. The increase in searches has translated into more active buying and selling as sales have been strong for many of the floral 1940s Roseville patterns.
It has also been encouraging to see an increase in interest in the more expensive middle period Roseville patterns such as Artcraft, Baneda, Blackberry, Cherry Blossom, Sunflower, Wisteria, etc. This is encouraging economic news for the antique industry in general and more specifically the art pottery market.
