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;
1891-1895: C.P.U.S. (Chelsea Pottery U.S.) impressed inside a clover leaf.

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 initials, a date, or the initials of the purchaser but these instances were rare and therefor, for collecting purposes, valuable.

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

Hugh C. Robertson signed his decorations with the monogram HCR from 1880 until his death in 1908.
