Red Wing Shape Ashtray

Question:
Hello: When I was a child in the 1950′s we had a spoon rest in the shape of a wing in a lovely dark red glaze. Does Red Wing still make this and if not, is there a site where I might find one to buy. thanks. Doug

Answer: Hi Doug

I don’t think there is a spoon rest in a wing form, but there is an ashtray, which I think would work just as well. Red Wing went out of business in 1967, but if kyou check ebay, or some shops around Red Wing, I think you can find another. I think these usually sell for around 50-75.00. thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing 1380 and 278

Question:
I was recently cleaning out some of my mother’s things and came across some very old Red Wing pottery pieces. It contains two five-piece candy dish sets that I remember seeing at my grandfather’s home when I was little. The printing on the bottoms of the candy dish sets says "1380 Red Wing USA". In addition to the previously mentioned sets, there was also one large matching bowl. The printing on the bottom of the bowl is "278 Red Wing USA". As you will see in the attached picture they appear to be in very good condition. Only one of the small pieces of one candy set appears to have been cracked and subsequently repaired. Other than that, they appear to be in perfect condition. Can you please shed some light on the potential value/interest in a set like this? Thank you in advance your help. Cheryl Dougherty

Answer: HI Cheryl

these sets were made around 1949, value is about 60.00 for each set. thanks, steve n rose
