I recently acquired this piece of Red Wing artware from a second hand/antique shop. I’m new to Red Wing and have tried searching for information on this and other forums. It is labeled "Red Wing USA 772" on the bottom. It is in excellent (mint?) condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, etc. There is a bit of wear on the bottom where the piece would make contact with the surface underneath… just some small areas where the glazing is worn off a bit.
It measures approx. 3.5" tall x 8" wide x 4" deep. The exterior is a light green color with a butter yellow/tan interior. As pictured, you can see there is also a silver sticker on the exterior. In red print on the sticker, there is a stylized vertical wing and it says "Red Wing Art Pottery."
When was this made? Is it desireable or common (I think it’s gorgeous, but is actually for my mother’s birthday)? What is its value?
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I’m new to Red Wing, and in doing this research, I’ve come to really be interested in acquiring more pieces! Unfortunately, my local library doesn’t have any books to help me out, so I do appreciate your assistance.
This Red Wing planter with hobnails is from circa 1962, the color is
probably cypress green. Top value is about $35.
