**Please Note that the Wood Lid is Not Original to the Piece**

A large single-handled baked bean pot from Robinson Ransbottom.  The pot measures 5 3/4" across the rim (about 9 1/2" total width) and 7 1/4" high.  The underside is marked "R.R.P. Co. Roseville, O. USA."  The pot is in good original condition but the original ceramic lid is not present and has been replaced with a wood lid that obviously can't go into the oven.  Also, there is natural crackling to the glaze.

Robinson Ransbottom Pottery of Ohio

Frank Ransbottom and his brothers started Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio, in 1900, and the company became one of the largest manufacturers of stoneware pottery in America.  In 1920, Ransbottom merged with Robinson Clay Products Co., which had even earlier origins, founded as Johnson, Whitmore and Co. in Akron, Ohio, in 1856.  With the merging of these two companies, the name was changed to Robinson-Ransbottom, or RRP Roseville Pottery Co. (not to be confused with Roseville Pottery Co).  RRP Co. produced art pottery, garden ware, and utilitarian housewares such as mixing bowls, crocks, spongeware. and butter churns until ceasing operations for good in 2005.
