Rosemeade Repair and Restoration
The Rosemeade Pottery Company, also called the Wahpeton Pottery Company, operated from 1940 to 1961 in Wahpeton, North Dakota. The company was owned and operated by husband and wife Laura A. Taylor and Robert J. Hughes. Laura, the company’s primary designer, died in 1959, but production continued until 1961 and a showroom remained open until 1964 to sell the last of the Rosemeade items.
Rosemeade is best known for its pottery animals, specifically realistic looking animals, birds and fish. Many of the more common Rosemeade pieces include pheasants, quail, songbirds, dogs, American bison and coyotes. Many of these animals were produced in the form of figurines, salt and pepper shakers, paper weights, cup sitters, ashtrays and pins.
Rosemeade pieces are easily recognizable due to their distinctive lustrous glazes. The creations accurately modeled their living counterparts and then painted by hand with vivid colorings. They were typically painted with metal oxides under the glazes and then fired, which produced exceptionally colorful hues. Rosemeade pottery pieces feature several different marks; the most well known is a prairie rose sticker.
