Shell Shape ashtray

Question:

It’s taken me this long to take a picture of my ashtray and send it to you.  I guess a more appropriate description of it would have been “scallop shell”.  What can you tell me about this picture?  It is stamped as stated in my earlier e-mail.

Thanks so much.

Sherry

Answer:

Red Wing Magnolia Line 1032

Question:

Hello! I have a 13 inch off white platter that looks to be and was sold to me as, the red wing magnolia pattern, the one with the magnolia blossom in relief and “antiqued” with brown paint around the edges of the magnolia blossom and leaves. However, as this platter is deep and slightly pedastalled, the bottom is open, rather than flat like most pieces. It is unmarked. Do you think this platter was made by red wing, or is it a knockoff? Thank You in advance! Jennifer

Answer:

this is # 1032, from the Magnolia line, circa 1942.  It books for around 100.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Vase 1107

Question:

Folks,

I have a Red Wing vase numbered 1107 and believe it was produced for J.B Hudson stores. In years of collecting, I have not seen another like this. Attached is a photo, as well as a photo of the mark on the bottom. Can you confirm this piece was made originally for J.B. Hudson and give me an idea of the rarity of the piece and its value? Thanks. My wife and I enjoy collecting Red Wing and being members of the organization.

Answer: I think you assumption is correct.  Similiar to the Lother pieces, which is what I first thought when I saw it.  It is an unusual mark, but I don’t think it will bring a very high price, maybe around 90.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing USA 1096

Question:

Hello,

I have been reading your website and have encountered several Red Wing USA 1096 leaf vases, but all are different color from mine. 

Mine has the same markings but is a medium blue with a soft patina, and a cream colored inside.  The leaves on the outside are edged in the cream color and the leaves are raised relief.  It is a very graceful piece and in perfect condition.  No chips or cracks.  What can you tell me about this, including value?  I have loved  this since my grandmother used it.

Thank you,

Sue

Answer: Hi Sue
this design is from 1941.  There were around a dozen or so different glaze colors that year, so you will find it done in many different glazes.  Value on this is around 45.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Answer:

I got the following answer back on the two art pottery pieces from Steve and Rose:

the brushware bowl is redwing, value around 50.00 or so.  The vase may be, both western and redwing made the Heron vase.  Value on the vase is around 80.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

This is Al Kohlman’s response on your stoneware pieces:

Jon & Nanci, the first stoneware piece is a Bailed Packing Jar.  It looks to be Red Wing, but not being signed in could be from a different pottery.  Either way, with no decoration, advertising or signed, the value is quite low.  $15 to $20.

Your second stoneware piece is called a Milk Pan.  Even though blue is the best color to find it in, not be signed keeps the value low.  $10 to $15.  Al Kohlman

Hobby Shop candleticks shape 1409

Question:

Hi-

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.

Thank you,

Kae

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
