DEDHAM & ROBERTSON POTTERY FOR SALE

*S-Z*

The Dedham Pottery Company; Hugh C. Robertson visited the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia and viewed pottery from China with a blood red crackled glaze that would inspire him to create his own version. In 1867, the Robertson family founded their first company in Chelsea, Massachusetts on the corner of Marginal and Willow Streets, a predecessor to the Dedham Pottery, called Chelsea Pottery U.S. Chelsea Pottery U.S. closed in 1895 and the company moved on to Dedham, MA where Hugh C. Robertson, a fifth generation Scottish potter, opened Dedham Pottery in 1896.

The most recognizable design is a repeating crouching rabbit referred to as "the Dedham Rabbit". The rabbits crouch with their ears back and in between each rabbit stands a vegetable stalk which a former workman claimed to be a Brussels sprout. There are normally 10 rabbits hand painted in a clockwise rotation. The Dedham Rabbit design was created by Miss Alice Morse and J. Lindon Smith of the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston after winning a design contest put on by the founding members of the Dedham Pottery. Other designs featured were elephants, dolphins, polar bears, chicks, swans, turtles, ducks, butterflies, lilies, clover, and mushrooms. During its years of production, Dedham Pottery created over fifty patterns.

Markings;

(1879-1891) C.K.A.W. (Chelsea Keramic Art Works)

(1891-1895) C.P.U.S. (Chelsea Pottery U.S.) impressed inside a clover leaf. Some items may have only a single impressed foreshortened rabbit prior to the use of the square blue back stamp.

 

(1896-1928) Square blue stamp with DEDHAM POTTERY printed over a rabbit; impressed foreshortened rabbit beneath.

 

(1929-1943) REGISTERED added under standard Dedham Pottery stamp; two impressed foreshortened rabbits beneath.

  

Rarely the decorator would add his or her initials, a date, or the initials of the purchaser but these instances were rare and therefor, for collecting purposes, valuable.

(1904-1928)  Maude Rose Davenport was a very skilled decorator at Dedham Pottery. She signed her work with a rebus, a small circle hidden in the border of her works.

(1879-1908)  Hugh C. Robertson signed his decorations with the monogram HCR or a small square hidden in the boarder design until his death in 1908.

  

The items offered for sale on this page are antique/vintage. Items should be expected to  have normal anomalies present, such as glaze crawl marks, tool marks, slight spotting from the making in the finish, normal use shelf wear, small bubbles which may or may not have opened during the firing process or light edge wear roughness to the touch which would not be considered as post production damage.
