Brushed Ware shape 105

Found a ‘planter’ piece—It is described in ‘Red Wing Potters & Their Wares’  Second Edition by the Teffts’.

The one I am looking at is shown on page 169 of this book   — middle row—left hand side.   It is marked ‘red wing art pottery’    Mint condition—little dirt ring on inside.  Can you advise an approximate value?

Thanks

Red Wing 2513, Oxford Line

Question:  

Hello my name is Jim Ferraguti and I live in Bellevue Nebraska and have been collecting red wing crocks and have stumbled across some other red wing  pottery pieces, I really like them cause they are so Americana and unique. One that I was wondering is a black and white pitcher with red wing usa 2313 on the bottom. Are these numbers of any significance and what would something like this be valued at. It’s black with white speckaled blotting all over.  It almost looks as if it was fired twice with a glossy finish. Can you be more helpful or will I need to try and send a picture of it. I don’t know all the ins and outs of internet picture sending but I could get my grandson to help me out. Thank You. Jim

Answer: Hi Jim

Red Wing 890 ashtray

Question:

Hello,

I have two questions including pictures of a couple of my finds.   Please comment on the age and the worth of these items.   Thank you in advance for your information.

#1,  I picked up this Ashtray at an Estate Sale.  It was just differant enough to catch my eye.  Can you give me an idea of the age and the worth?  It is in mint condition, very high gloss glaze.   The number on this piece is 890.   The horse just cracks me up,  kinda whimsical, not a very tough looking horse.  Rhonda

Answer: hello
the ashtray is from around 1965, value around 50.00 or so, and the basket #285 is a RumRill item, from the mid 30′s.  value on it about 55.00.  the numbers are mixed an matched, so, no 50-677 aren’t all RumRill items.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Vase 1259

Question:

Hi Red WIng Experts,

I inherited two Red Wing vases and am curious about their approximate value. I do some appraisals via email for antique tools and know the problems in doing so but I’m wondering if these vases are common or something worth investigating further.

See attached pictures. The vases are 9 1/4 inches tall, 3 inch square bottom, 5 inch square top. The markings on the bottom are very hard to read but I think it says

1959

Red Wing

USA

There are no external chips but one vase has some interior cracking in the glaze.

Thanks for the free service you provide.

Mike

Answer: Hi MIke
this is shape #1259, from around 1954.  Value is about 25.00 each.  thanks, steve n rose
