Brown Vase

Question:
I bought this piece about 10 years ago at an old 100+ estate sale. They were hesitant to sell me the piece because they thought it might be a burial urn. It looks like it could be a flower vase, but it definitely has the glaze to me to look like Redwing. Any ideas? I would like to know if it is and what the worth is. It stands about 8 1/2" H x 4 1/2 W. If you could give me info on the cheese mold(?) in the background it would also be helpful. Thank you. Mel

Answer: Hi Mel

it looks to be a molded piece, but it’s not a Red Wing shape. I’m not sure who made this one. thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing art deco ashtray, shape 1586

Question:
May I please get an approximate value of the Red Wing item I have attached a picture for. In excellent condition; no cracks, chips, etc. You can see the markings clearly by the picture. I believe this to be an ash tray. Thank you. Kathy

I can’t think of the number, right off my head, but this does date to the fifties, kind of late for art deco, but I do agree, it does have that style. Value for this one is around 65.00 or so, it doesn’t show up very often. thanks, steve n rose

Vase Marked “4144″ matte black glaze

Question:
This object is classically inspired vase or a strawberry pot. It has a matte glaze inside and out that is blue with darker speckles. It is 9" tall and 6" in largest diameter. It has no obvious makers marks on it, though I believe I have detected a ’4144′ and perhaps ‘RL’ scratched faintly into the bottom. This vase is heavy and appears to be made of stoneware. It has one small chip on the rim. I’m grasping at straws to identify this vase. I’m no expert but it looks a bit like a vase attributed to Waco (KY) pottery. Another online site suggests it might be a Roadside Craftsmen (NY) product. In viewing some other Red Wing vases, the blue glaze and fluting appeared similar to them. Moreover, my aunt, who owned this vase, had relatives who lived in Red Wing. Any insight is appreciated! Thanks for your time. John

 

Answer: Hi John

it is a strawberry pot/vase, but It’s not done by Red Wing. It does look to be factory done, not your average hobby shop item. Most Waco items I know of are marked as such. I’m not sure who did this. Sorry we can;t be of more help. thanks, steve n rose
