Frederick Rothenbusch was born in Cincinnati Ohio, and he attended the Cincinnati Art Academy. He decorated pottery at Rookwood Pottery for many years, from 1896 through 1931. His work appears to have been completely done in vellum Glaze, including some very large vases and plaques, executed beautifully and often with landscapes. Collector interest in his pieces is considered to be above average.
