Brushed sand jar yellow inside

Question:
I have had a green and "brushed" sand jar, but just found a jar that is yellow inside and out. The images are very crisp and defined — do you have any info thanks Art

Answer: Red Wing did make a Tan brushed ware glaze, and the interior is a glossy version of the same glaze. It would date to around 1930. Is it the doe/buck sand jar? there are a couple other shapes as well, but it’s the most common. Apic would be great. Most of these sandjars sell for 3-500. thanks, steve n rose

Red Vase identification

Question:
Hello my name is Gina. I have had the most difficult time identifying this vase. I have searched endlessly ive been through library books and unending internet searches. The vase measures approximately 10" tall and the diameter is 7.5". The vase has several interesting indentations it almost seems they are meant to be decorative indents.

Answer: Hi Gina

I don’t know who made this one, sorry. wish I knew. thanks, steve n rose
