Certainly Marshall Fields in New York and Chicago, probably Gump's in San Francisco, those types of names. Rookwood was sold in fine department stores and jewelry stores throughout the United States, which is how it got dispersed all over the United States. They did a mail-order catalog once, but I don't think it was very successful. Like a lot of companies, Rookwood went into hiding during the Depression, into seclusion, just dropped off the map from the collector point of view. I don't think anybody collected much of anything until well after World War II. In the early 1960s, there were people collecting Rookwood who weren't even necessarily aware what they were doing. They might have known that it was made in Cincinnati and that it was pretty neat, but they didn't have a lot to go on. By the early 1970s, there were new collector books in a lot of areas that spurred interest, and then museums got involved and held major showings of things that had fallen out of favor, like Rookwood and Tiffany. That's when it really kicked into gear. By the late ��70s, prices had gone up dramatically, and since then have cycled up and down and up down, depending on the economy. When I say fallen out of favor, I mean that nobody had any money from, say, 1930 to 1945.
