I am hoping you can provide more information regarding this teardrop piece I found at a garage sale. I am only able to find the teardrop candle holder and was told this may be a “prototype” by the artist that designed the candle holder. Is this true? Is/was this something your artists did? The piece is approximately 51/4 inches high and about 4 inches wide. As you can see it has a shiny blue glaze with red “splotches.” I hope you can help provide more information.
Answer: HI Kay
no, this isn’t a prototype for this particular shape. When the factory closed, molds were sold to others, craft stores, etc. This isn’t a Red Wing glaze, so was done at a later time, somewhere else, not at the Red Wing factory. we call these “hobby shop” items. value maybe around 10.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
