Hi, I have attached some pictures of a Red Wing art pottery vase that I recently acquired. From the research that I have been able to do, I understand that this vase was made during the Rumrill period 1932 – 1937. I have not been able to find out anything about the color of this vase. It is a rusty red orange and brown blended color and my question is what this was called and is this vase more unique in this color? Also there are 2 small (app. 1″ long) hairline cracks visible on the inner rim of this vase. I wondered why these appear, because the rest of the vase has no damage or wear, does it happen when it is made or is it stress and happens over time? I don’t have any real idea of what this is worth, so if you could help me with that I would be very appreciative. Thank you in advance for your help.
Answer: you are correct, rumrill, from the neoclassic line. some call the glaze scarlet and bay. the cracks shouldn’t be there, so with the damage, value around 35.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
