But then we were encouraged to sell other Rookwood collections, and we've been doing it since 1991 and have a great time at it. Can you give us a little background on Rookwood?Standard Glaze 6 5/8 inch lidded humidor, decorated by Ed Diers in 1899Standard Glaze 6 5/8 inch lidded humidor, decorated by Ed Diers in 1899Humler: Rookwood started here in Cincinnati in 1880 and operated until about 1960. By then the company was pretty much defunct, was sold and moved to Mississippi, briefly stayed alive and then shut down again. The copyright was sold to a dentist in Michigan who operated the pottery making small animal figurines and things. He owned the copyright, and did that for almost 20 years. Recently a group of businessmen here at Cincinnati bought the copyright from him and they're trying to put Rookwood back on the map. So although Rookwood wasn't in continuous production from 1880, the copyright has always been enforced. Rookwood's success came from a couple of things. They were very conscientious about always trying to continuously improve their product, quality was always on their mind. They wanted to be profitable, but they also wanted to do things the right way. They also had a constant supply of well trained artists working at Rookwood because of their proximity with the Cincinnati Art Museum and the training facilities at the museum's art academy.
