Question:

Hello,

I’ve come across a Red Wing “Party Ware” 13″ salad bowl, marked “100” on bottom, with grey back glaze. Its condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or crazing. I’m trying to get some idea of the scarcity/value of a piece like this. Can you give any suggestions?

Thank you for your help!
Dan

Answer:

A 1949 Party Ware brochure refers to item 100 as the Master Salad Bowl (as opposed to individual salad  bowls).  This large bowl is quite scarce, especially compared to the more common individual salad bowls and plates.  Value for a Master Salad Bowl in mint condition would be $75-100.
