Jardiniere Placed Up on A Pedestal

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Q: I have enclosed a photo of a pottery vase and matching pedestal base. My mother bought it 51 years ago while vacationing in Ventura, Calif. It has always been in a safe place, in fact she put it in a corner of the living room and never used it for anything. The base is 14 inches tall and the vase is 8 inches tall. The glaze is glossy green and graduates to a tan color. Both pieces are in perfect condition. Marked on the bottom of the base are the words ''R R P Co. - Roseville - Ohio.''

I would appreciate any information you can provide including its value.

A: You have a jardiniere and pedestal that was made by Robinson Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. They have produced kitchenware and stoneware since 1900.

Your stoneware set was made around 1920 and would probably be worth $275 to $375.

Q: This mark is on the back of an oval porcelain platter that was given to me by my mother-in-law. The platter has a green border and in the center there are sprays of pink flowers and greenery against a white background. It has no chips and is in mint condition.

Do you have any idea of who made it and what it's worth?

A: Remy Delinieres Co. made your platter. They have made porcelain in Limoges, France, from around 1879 to the present.

Your platter would probably be worth $75 to $125.

Q: I hope you will be able to help me to learn more about a doll that belonged to my mother around 1915. She stands 15 inches tall, has a composition body, jointed limbs, a bisque head, and an open mouth with four teeth showing. Marked on the back of her head are the words ''Armand Marseille - 390N - Germany - AM.''

A doll restorer restrung her limbs and replaced her wig. She also replaced the sleep eyes with permanently open eyes. Other than that, my doll is in very good condition.

What can you tell me about its value and maker?

A: Armand Marseille Doll Co. was one of the leading suppliers of bisque doll heads for factories that made doll bodies. They were located in Thuringia, Germany, from 1885 to the 1930s. ''390N'' is the model number of the doll's head. In the early 1900s when the Armand Marseille factory was operating at peak performance, they produced at least 1,000 heads a day.

The value of your doll would probably be $190 to $255.

Q: I inherited an aluminum roaster with a bail handle from my mom around 31 years ago. I am 65 and can remember her using it when I was growing up. It still brings back memories of my mom's excellent Hungarian cooking. It has a trademark with the words ''Wagner Ware - No. 8 - Drip Drop Roaster'' on the lid and ''Sidney Round Roaster - Dec., 10 - 20'' on the bottom of the pan. I would like to pass it along to my two sons who both enjoy cooking and hope to provide them with it history and value.

A: Wagner Ware made your cast aluminum roaster/Dutch oven. They are located in Sidney, Ohio, and make cast iron and cast aluminum cookware. ''Dec., 10 - 20'' is a 1920 patent date and ''No. 8'' refers to the size.

The value of your roaster would probably be $25 to $50.
