  • Pattern:  Vintage Bean Pot / Crock, Brown & Beige Pottery
  • Made in Roseville, OH, USA
  • Vintage:  1970's (estimated)
  • Details:  This is a really large (and heavy!) glazed bean pot.  We believe it is made by RRP Co (Robinson-Ransbottom), however, only the "USA" part of their stamp is visible, however, it is an ink stamp with printed writing, just like RRP used.  It is in the much desired and collectible, brown and beige glazed style.  Interesting shape with only one side handle, this is commonly known as a bean pot, perhaps it's more of a "jug".  There is no lid, unsure if it's meant to have one. This is a very heavy piece, please keep that in mind at check-out.  We have seen this used to display dried flowers, silk leaves, rolling pins, kitchen utensils, all kinds of uses for this pretty pot. Perfect for a country or farmhouse home, and great piece for a Fall decor vignette.
  • Material:  Ceramic
  • Dimensions:  7.5 inches Tall, approx. 8.5 inches in Diameter (at its widest point).  Top opening is 4.0 inches in Diameter.  Holds 4Qt to the very top.

The R.R. P. CO. was founded by the Ransbottom Brothers in 1900 in Ironspot, Ohio.  By 1916 Ransbottom Pottery was the largest producer of stoneware jars in America.  In 1920, they merged with the Robinson Clay Product Company of Akron, Ohio, to become Robinson-Ransbottom. At the beginning, Robinson-Ransbottom made jardinieres and red flower pots, then expanded into gardenware when it merged with the Robinson Clay Product Company.  RRP manufactured had several different trademarks like: Old Colony, Rustic Ware, Luxor,  Tionesta Art Ware, Meal Makers Oven Ware and Early Stoneware American. Old Colony and Rustic Ware were introduced in the 1930s, with Old Colony remaining in production until 1940.  Rustic Ware was being produced into the 1960s.  The factory closed in 2005.
