Charles Murphy Vase, dated 1958


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?
Thank you so much,


they are correct, a murphy design, from that timeframe.  I would say 100.00 or so, maybe a little more, if it’s in perfect condition.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing 1510 vase


We have started collecting the above Red Wing Pottery pieces and were curious as to how many different colors are available of this style and when they were produced.  Any information on this series as well as the M-1509 bud vase as we are thinking about getting into the coordinating colors of these bud vases as well.

Thank you for your time.


Answer: Lori
they date to 1954, all four fleck glazes, with black and white are from that year.  There are probably more, I’m sure they were made for more than one year.  You might look for #1511, it has a kind of reverse handle from the 1510….  hope this helps, thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing #220 Pitchers


Dear Rose and Steve Splittgerber,

I have two Red Wing #220 Pitchers, each with the dragon figure on its handle.  Reading over the previous assessments on the Red Wing Collectors Society website, I understand that the dates that the pitchers were produced and their values are dependent upon their color and glazing. 

I am interested in selling these two items either to an antique vendor, on ebay, or in a garage sale and would like to know their approximate date and value for the sale.  Your help is much appreciated.

I also want to thank you for having a very useful and user-friendly website.

In gratitude,

Answer: Hi Kristine
these date to the late 30’s, I think somewhere around 75.00 each would be a fair price.  thanks, steve n rose
