Red Wing 508

Question:
Hello, I have a small pottery pot with the following raised label on the bottom: Red Wing USA. 508 It is 9 inches in diameter and 6 1/2 inches high. The inside of the pot is cream colored and the outside is tan color with what I view as a raised basket weave design. For example, the bottom third has raised rings, the middle portion has various sized groupings of vertical, horizontal, and square raised patterns. The top portion has more rings. It’s a pretty little pot my mother had given me and am wondering if you happen to know by the description if it is really red wing pottery and if so, when was made. Thanks! Mary Burke

Answer: Mary, It is a Red Wing item. It was designed in 1962, this one may be a little later. The glaze sounds like cocoa brown. There were 3 sizes, with this being the smallest. Value is around 30.00. thanks, steve n rose
