Advertising Bulb Bowl

Question:
I just purchased an advertising bulb bowl in brushware at the convention. Can you give me additional information on advertising brushware. I talked to some brushware collectors who said many florists featured advertising brushware. I had never seen it. Any information would be appreciated. Wendy

Answer:
We have seen a few brushware peices with advertising, but they are hard to find. The Schleich Red Wing Museum has a bulb bowl with advertising from Neenah WI. This is an area that has little information at this time. Thanks SteveNRose

Brushed Ware Umbrella Stand

Question: {mosimage}
Here is a picture of a Brushed Ware Umbrella Stand I just found at an Illinois Estate. It measures 21 1/2 inch high. Please let me know the value and if RRP Co also used this mold. Thanks Marijke

Answer:
We only received a picture of the bottom of the umbrella stand. We need another picture of the design, as RRP and Red Wing made simular pieces as you already know. We believe you to be correct about RRP as the maker. To our knowledge Red Wing did not make an umbrella stand with the poppy design. They usually sell for around $150.
