I’m a glass collector, but I recently purchased this pottery vase and I’m trying to identify it. I have a few contendors but the one I’m leaning towards at this time is Red Wing. It is a pink speckle pattern with a pale blue, almost purple interior glaze. It is marked on the bottom with an incised mark but is hard to make out any words. I can see 3 lines with USA in the middle line. It does seem to fit the shape for Red Wing on the top but it’s really hard to say for sure.

It measures 10 1/2″ tall and about 6 1/2″ wide.

I would greatly appreciate it if you were able to shed any light on the subject.

Kind regards,



this is shape # M1498, designed by charles murphy, around 1956.  the glaze is called fleck zephyr pink.  Value is aorund 40.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose
