Crocus is an early period Arts and Crafts line introduced by Roseville Pottery in 1905. This line may have been called Egyptian, and collectors sometimes call it Conventional Landscape or Shiny Aztec. Designs tend to be a floral motif on a background of either a different shade or a contrasting color. This slip decorated line shares many of its shapes with Aztec, another early Arts and Crafts line. There are no known factory stock pages for Crocus and, therefore, no record of how many shapes there are. Crocus is usually unmarked, but may have a die-impressed number, slip-painted artist's initials, or the Rozane Ware wafer.
