Red Wing Vase # 1376

Question:
Please provide information and approximate value for Red Wing Vase # 1376. Little over 11" tall, no chips. Hope the picture comes through…IE: how old, how many made, what colors, and what is this worth now in 2011? Thank you

the 1376 dates to 1949, but this is a fleck glaze, from the middle fifties. There ought to be several different glazes, since it was made for several years. I have no production level of this certain vase. Not terribly rare, but probably hard to find without a broken handle. Value is around 50.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
