Robinson Ransbottom Cookie Jars

robinson ransbottom cookie jars Army Manrobinson ransbottom cookie jars Cow Jumped Over the MoonRobinson Ransbottom Pottery, aka RRP Roseville, is commonly confused with Roseville Pottery Co. They were two separate companies, both formerly doing business in Roseville, Ohio, and both companies are now out of business. All RRP is collectible, and their vintage cookie jars have done well, especially now that they have closed.

The company was originally founded as Ransbottom Brothers Pottery, by Frank Ransbottom in Beem, Ohio, one mile north of Roseville, Ohio. Frank and his three brothers, Ed, Johnie and Mort, grew up in the pottery industry. Their father, Alfred, operated the Bluebird Potteries in Ohio, and was one of the area's most successful jobbers of stoneware products. The four brothers acquired the defunct "Oval Ware and Brick Company" in the fall of 1900 and after some much needed repairs, they began production early in 1901.

The earliest products were jardinieres, cuspidors and red flower pots, but as the business grew they rapidly became a leading producer of stoneware jars. By 1916, Ransbottom Pottery had become the world's largest manufacturer of stoneware jars. In 1920, the company merged with Robinson Clay Products Company to form the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Co. With this merger production expanded into the gardenwares, housewares, and giftwares fields.
