McCoy Pottery: Floraline, Roseville Floraline, and Fineforms McCoy produced Floraline in the 1940's and again in the 1960's-80's; the pottery was often identical, but many have different marks and mold numbers, or two different shapes may have same mold numbers
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Many novice collectors of McCoy Pottery get confused when purchasing the 'Floraline' line, a line of pottery that has become very popular and pricey! McCoy Floraline pottery was made in the 1940's, (see mark 13, 1980 book by S. & B. Huxford), and again in the 1960's, (see pg. 230, 2002 book, Vol. 3 by B. Hanson). In 1960 it was introduced as Roseville Floraline, (not to be confused with Roseville Pottery), and was made for the retail florist industry. Pieces from the 1940's are simply marked, 'Floraline', some will also have USA on them. The 'Roseville Floraline' pieces are usually marked Floraline and have a model/mold number, some will also have USA, and LC or MCP on them. LC stands for Lancaster Colony, and MCP for Mt. Clemons Pottery, (both companies owned & operated the Nelson-McCoy company for a brief period of time, (see Vol. 3 referenced above to see the marks). In the later years of the McCoy company, another new line was introduced called, 'Roseville Floraline Fineforms', (see pg. 296, Vol. 3). These items may have FF on them, or FF and a model number, or USA and a model number.) You can still find a good bargain if you know what to look for since many Roseville Floraline Fineform items just have the USA and mold number, so inexperienced dealers might not know what they have!
