Brushed Ware Flower Pot

Question:

Greetings,

I have a Red Wing planter.  It is 7 inches in height and 8 inches in diameter.  On the bottom encircled in blue it reads “Red Wing Union Stoneware Co Redwing, Minn”  The outside of the planter has a matt finish, but the inside of the planter is a glossy green finish. There are no chips or cracks.  Is this brushware?  What would the value be?

Thank you in advance for your information.

Best Regards,

Mary

Answer: Hi Mary
yes, indeed, this is brushedware, circa 1930ish.  there were several sizes of this flower pot, this being the smallest.  Value is around 75.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Vase 1295

Question:

I inherited a Red Wing vase, 1295, in pristine condition.

I see from the Red Wing Collectors site that it was likely made in 1947 or so. I would like advice on 2 things: 1) what’s it worth, and 2) how to best go about selling it.

I have hundreds of vases and other things that my mom collected and for which I have absolutely no place to store them, and I’m at a loss for what to do to lighten my load. Any advice you have for me is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, 

Karen

Answer: Hi Karen
the date is correct, this is worth around 35.00 or so.  As for selling all your things, it does sound like there is quite a bit.  I would hire a local auctioneer, and have them sell it all for you.  I think you would get the best overall prices by doing it that way.  thanks, steve n rose

Answer: Michael
nice piece, especially with no dings.  think someone has added a little color along the way, but some paint remover will take care of that.  It dates to around 1936, value is 90.00 or so, cleaned up.  thanks, steve n rose

Charles Murphy Vase, dated 1958

Question:

Good morning,
 
I have this 14″ high vase and was told it was a Charles Murphy design from 1958.  Will you tell me the name of the line or series it came from?
 
I was also told, it was valued at about $100 back in 2003.  Would you know the approximate value today?
