#848 Bowl, Belle Line

Question:
Good morning and thanks for this great service. I have a piece of Red Wing pottery marked # 848 on the bottom. It is a pedestal bowl, oval in shape ,8X10 inches by 4 3/4"in height. The interior of the bowl is a rich shiny gold color the exterior starts with a matte finish dark brown band approx.1 7/8" in width and slightly concave and then changes to a shiny gray brown embossed stripe to form the bottom of the bowl the pedestal finishes the bowl and is in a solid semi shiny gray brown matching the embossed stripe.The base is approx. 4 3/4" in diameter. the bottom of the base is marked Red Wing USA 848. As to condition there is a factory flaw on the stripe section which is a slight fading of the stripe in two places. On the bottom of the base there is a 3/16 x 1/4" very shallow defect not visible unless the bowl is turned over I hate to call this defect a chip as it does not seem deep enough but it’s there and I thought I should mention it. All in all a very nice piece very easy to look at. If you should require more photos let me know and I would be happy to send them

Answer: Hi

thanks for the pic, and great description. This piece is from the Belle Line, done in 1963. Value is around 40.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose.

vase is marked “4688P”

Question:
This very tall (14") vase is marked "4688P"; is there any rhyme or reason to the Redwing numbering system? Can you tell me anything else about this beautiful vase? Thanks. C. Lambrecht

Answer: Hello

Red Wing’s numbering system is for the most part low to high, low numbers being from early production, to higher, later on. Some numbers were reused, so it’s not always true. I don’t recognise this as being a Red Wing product. Nice size and form, but I’m not sure who made it, wish I could be of more help. thanks, steve n rose
