Hello- have a Red Wing stoneware bird bath that I am curious about. Cannot find it in any Red Wing books or copies of catalogs. Any idea as to value. June
Answer: June you kind of have a mishmash of parts, the top is a birdbath bowl, the bottom is a pedestal for an urn, a completely different item. they date to around
1930. the broken pedestal is worth maybe 20.00, and the top of the birdbath, around 100.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
HI STEVE, I am not sure if you answer emails like this, but a friend turned me on to this site, I do not often come across Red Wing, nor Rumrill.. But I enjoyed reading the letters to you and your answers..
Now for what I have, and cannot find out anything for sure..
I have a large planter or console bowl in the shape of a shell. I have attached photos if you want to take a look..
The shell is marked on the bottom with all letter reversed, LLIRMUR U.S.A and the number 505 backwards as well. Beisides the markings being backwards, some one also painted the bottom black, not sure for what reason.. I purchased this at an Country barn an estate of a couple that passed on and were quite well to do.. So did not think it was junk.. Attached see pictures, the dish is about 12″ long..
Thank you for your time.
Answer: That’s an odd one, I have no idea how its marked backwards. Its not a RedWing glaze or shape, so I’m not sure on a value. Thanks, Steve&rose
Information found by submitter later:
As written in RumRill book The Ohio Years 1938-1942
505 shell console bowl Neptune green 1942 Gonder made. 16″ long. $250.-300. They were finished in soft muted shades of green and tan, and their interiors were usually a high gloss pink finish. These large pieces also had an unusual charcoal black bottom—another sign of a Gonder-made RumRill. these unglazed bottoms were also sometimes numbered with a three-digit shape number, starting with the 500 series. These pieces were produced in late 1941 and 1942 at the Zane Pottery Company which later was renamed Gonder Ceramic Arts. Rare ash black bottoms had a distinctive reverse impressed mark. These pieces were made during the transition period when Gonder started producing RumRill Pottery.

We recently picked up with piece what can you tell us about its history and value.
Answer: Brushedware garden urn, circa 1930, value 500-1000 Nice find…. Steve n Rose
Question: The subject pitcher is approximately 10 1/4″ tall. The primary color is white with a faint blue hue. Fluted and intricate design. As the picture shows, it has a face with serpent type figures on either side of the face. The handle is a serpent type figure. The bottom appears to be impressed red wing with the number 220. It’s difficult to make out the number. As you can see in the photo, there is a chip on the under side of the lip. Otherwise, it’s in great condition. I’m interested in the value of this piece, as well as the identity. Thank you for your service. Respectfully,
Answer: 220 sounds right for the shape, circa 1935. Value with the chip around 35.00 or so. Thanks, Steve&rose
I Found this in a wall when adding a sunroom on to my house. The bottom is marked rumrill 50. Curious to find out more about this. Thanks Jay
Answer: Hi Jay
this is a #50 ball jug, early 30′s. there should be a stopper with it,
but still has a value of around 60.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
Thanks for your help. I tried to get the best pictures I could. Hard with the deep color. The vase is 10 inches tall and in good condition–no chips or cracks. Any information as to the value and how to sell it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again, Karol
this is shape 246, it dates to around 1930/31. the glaze is called cobalt/dark
blue. Ebay is usually the best way to sell. Value is around 80.00 or so, just depends on who is bidding. thanks, steve n rose
I found this item in our local dump and hope to sell it to a discerning collector who
appreciates it. What can you tell me about its production and current value?
Catalog listing? It is 7 1/2″ high, 5″ wide and quite hefty. The base is slightly rounded. Note the RWU mark is round, not oval. I have been unable to ascertain much about it except that I believe its Brushware from the late 1920s. There is simply no better vase for golden, dried flowers or grain than this one, bar none, because it can support the weight. Please also let me know if you think of someone who would be interested in purchasing it from me for a fair price. Thank you for your time.
this is a brushware vase, made by RedWing, circa 1930. It looks to be painted,
but that can be removed. Value is around 70.00 or so. interesting find…
thanks, steve n rose
My grandma recently passed away and I got this pottery. Just wondering if you can tell
me about it.
Thanks for the info. I can’t tell if its a 2 or a 9 so I took a picture. The only info I have is
my grandma got this before she was married so I assume its pretty old.
The dinnerware pattern you have is called Normandy. This pattern is part of the Provincial dinnerware line of the 1940s. Here is an article about the line and pattern from our website:
The covered sugar bowl and the salt & pepper shakers are worth $20-25. I can’t tell from the photo if the smaller piece is a small bowl or small plate, but either way the
value is $7.50 to $10. All values assume excellent condition. Larry Roschen
The candlesticks are art pottery, value is around 35.00 for the pair. thanks,
