In the 1970s, a young artist known as Jim Rumph created a line of fantasy-themed art pottery in his "Slyme Factory" facility in the southern California beach community of Santa Monica. He sold his pieces at the nearby Renaissance Pleasure Faire and at local specialty shops like Sherry Gottlieb's A Change of Hobbit bookstore, among others. In later years, the pieces also began appearing at local chain gift and specialty stores. In the decades since then, many of Jim's pieces have become highly desirable and collectible. Even some of the the later pieces that were mass produced, such as the Stars Wars tankard on this page, are now collectible.

The various Rumph items for sale on this page were purchased new in the 1970s by me, the proprietor of this website, and have been in my collection since then. While each piece was originally designed with a specific use in mind, e.g., drinking mug, beverage tankard, planter, display shelf, etc., all of the items below have been used exclusively as display pieces over the years. Three of the items suffered some damage in a moving mishap many years ago, but they were repaired (they still bear a few scars) and have been treasured posessions and display pieces ever since. Click the image or MORE INFO button on each piece to see more photos and a detailed description, then click the Add to Cart button to purchase. Items will be carefully and securely packed for shipping.
