This spherical vessel is from one of Roseville's most popular lines. Ironically, the Pinecone pattern almost didn't make it to production. It was designed by Frank Ferrel in the early 1900s, but it was rejected by Weller, Peters & Reed, and Roseville potteries. In 1931, a Roseville salesman by the name of Charles Snyder decided the design was marketable and the Pinecone line was launched. It was tremendously successful, and an estimated 150 shapes and styles were created.
