Is It Ben?

This set is interesting.  The pattern used is the Country-Time pattern; however, the items themselves appear in neither of the Country-Time brochures I have.  Are any of these items a Ben Seibel design?

Raymor Holland


Tea Set marked Raymor Holland.  Mark is identical to the mark found the the Raymor Holland Pitcher which Ben's son has verified as being A Ben Seibel Design.


Lotus, ca.1952

On page 231 of Understanding Roseville Pottery by Mark Bassett, there is a photograph of Ben holding a drawing of the Lotus line.  The back of the photograph is labeled, "Left: Ben Seibel (Designer)..."

Bassett writes, "While working with the New York design firm Smith and Scheer, Ben Seibel designed Lotus and perhaps a few previous Roseville's lines.  Neither the recent Chinese Modern lines nor Florane exhibited Frank Ferrell's highly recognizable style."
