Rookwood (52)

Identification:  Almost all my Rookwood flower frogs are marked with the Rookwood logo, year of production, shape number and size. The logo consists of the letters RP for Rookwood Pottery, but with the R turned backward.

To indicate the year of production, each year beginning in 1887 a flame was added around the RP. This culminated in 1900 with 14 flames, which is how the logo appears today. Then beginning in 1901 the last two digits of the calendar year were added below the logo in Roman numerals. For example, XVII appears below the logo on a flower frog produced in 1917.

All of my Rookwood flower frogs are marked with shape number 1621 followed by a letter to indicate their size, with the exception of the oblong ones. The oblong ones are marked shape number 2612 with no letter, I imagine because they were only made in one size.

The letters A through F indicate the size from the largest to the smallest, respectively. However, that is not to suggest that all shapes were made in six sizes, or even more than one. My Rookwood flower frogs range in size from B through F.

I also have one flower frog, which I have cataloged as No. C-103, marked with a sideways P to indicate that it is made of porcelain.

Shape 1621 – Early Dome Style (5)

Note:  A Rookwood shape number usually refers to a specific shape, but block (non-figural) flower frogs are an exception. Shape number 1621 is used for a variety of shapes as seen in these early dome-shaped examples and the hockey puck-shaped examples which follow.
