Description

  • Vintage item from the 1980s

This pie pan and its matching lid were made of grey stoneware with overall blue sponging by the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. They are in absolutely pristine, unused condition, with no marks, chips or cracks. The pie plate is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep, while the lid is 10 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall to the top of the round knob handle. The set weighs 6 1/4 pounds and has impressed marks on the bottom that read: Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Roseville, Ohio USA.

The Ransbottom brothers—Frank, Ed and Mort—started a pottery in 1900 that became the largest producer of stoneware jars. In the 1920’s, when stoneware jars were losing popularity, they merged with the Robinson Clay Products Company to become RRP, making bricks, sewer tiles and other clay products; they added kitchen wares in the 1930’s. They proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005).

This spongeware set can be used for your favorite pie recipe or as a covered serving dish and looks great sitting on a cupboard shelf.
