Floraline (McCoy)

Roseville Florine is a line of pottery produced by McCoy (1960-~1974).  They were a cheaper line aimed at florist shops.  These pieces are designed to be simpler forms and colors that will help showcase a display of flowers. Most of the Floraline pots are now listed as "planters".

While arguably less valuable than classic McCoy-marked cermaics the difference in value is minor when comparing similar pieces. Floraline sells for a little more in white color, and increasingly in sage green.

While generally not highly valuable all types of McCoy pottery are very useful and collectible and can be found in many charity and resales stores.  As an American product that is no longer in production, they can be expected to gain some value over time.
