The company was founded by J.F. Weaver in Roseville, Ohio, in 1890. The Roseville company had great success producing stoneware flower pots and other practical household items. In 1898, they purchased the Clark Stoneware Company in Zanesville, and moved the headquarters there.

In 1900 George Young hired Ross C. Purdy to create the company’s first art pottery line – Rozane. The Rozane art line was designed to compete against Rookwood Pottery’s Standard Glaze, Owens Pottery’s Utopian, and Weller Pottery’s Louwelsa art lines.

Many collectors buy and sell carnival glass on eBay with a price range of $30 to $400 per piece.

Here’s a great description on David Doty’s Carnival Glass Website:

What is Carnival Glass?

This is a question that confuses many people new to collecting Carnival. Primarily, Carnival Glass is pressed glass that has had an iridescent coating applied. Remember, if it isn’t iridized, it isn’t Carnival.

Pressed glass? This is glass that has been formed by being pressed into a mold while in a hot molten form. As it cools, it takes on the shape and detail of the mold. Once removed from the mold, and while still relatively hot, it is sprayed with metallic salts in liquid form which gives it the “oil-on-water” multicolor appearance.

Carnival Glass was first produced by Fenton in 1907 and continues to be made today. There were 5 or 6 major makers of it originally, but Fenton is the only one of the original group still in business.

Poole pottery is highly collectible and goes for $15 to $200 on eBay.

According to the Poole pottery article on Wikipedia:

“Poole Pottery is a pottery manufacturer, originally based in Poole, Dorset, England. The company was founded in 1873 on Poole quayside, where it continued to produce pottery by hand before moving its factory operations away from the quay in 1999. Production continued at the new site in Sopers Lane until its closure in 2006. Historical products from Poole Pottery are displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The pottery has recently restarted production at its new factory in Burslem, Staffordshire, and the Poole Quay pottery studio and shop has reopened.”
