Light blue vase with raised flower design

Question:
Hi; I found this piece and thought it may be early Red wing. There are no marks and the clay seems to be less polished. Can you tell by the pictures? I have more photos but was limited to one here. Trish

Answer: Hi Trish

I think you have a piece of McCoy pottery, can’t really give you a value, but it’s a point in the right direction. thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Brushed ware vase

Question:
Hello! Would you kindly let me know about the pictured brushstroke vase? It is about 10 inches high, maybe a fraction less. I know the vase has been among my family’s things for a long time, and I’ve always loved it. I’m not sure it’s from the 1930s or is part of the later pots. The stamp on the bottom is "Red Wing Union Stoneware Co. Red Wing, Minn." within a circle. Let me know if you want to see other images. I have both sides, interior (glazed) and the bottom stamp. The "Union" in the stamp is sort of jumbled, as though the word was bumped after it was stamped but before it was set. Thanks very much! Sue

Answer: Hi Sue

this is indeed an older pot, from the brushedware line, circa 1930. Value is around 90.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Pottery 2001 – need photo

Question:
I found a pitcher, imprinted on the side with "Red Wing Pottery" 2001. There is also what appears to be a name "Keith" which is imprinted at the base of the handle. Could you tell me anything about this pitcher? Sorry, I tried to upload a picture but it wouldn’t work. The pitcher is brown in color and about a pint capacity. The inside is glazed with a lighter brown. There is nothing on the bottom except three spots where it might have been attached to something in the making process. It has a mottled texture, three sets of lines encircling it and two squiggly or wavey lines which also encircle it. Beverly

 

Answer: Beverly

I do know the Red Wing name is used by a pottery in Red Wing. They make several different pieces, this would be one of them, with the date 2001. This is not to be confused with the old Red Wing, which quit business in 1967. hope this helps, thanks, steve n rose

Madonna pice small version

Question:
I have a mini Madonna exactly like the large Madonna numbered #757 without the planter attached. It measures 2 3/4" high and weighs about 2oz’s. It also has the initials JW incised in the back on the bottom. Do you think this is a salesmans sample or a lunch hour piece, or what do you think? Thanks for your help. Debra

Answer: Hi Debra

not sure what to think, I doubt it’s a Red Wing item, a few other companies made similiar Madonna pieces, I would guess this is one of them. I can’t really give you value either. wish I could be of more help, thanks, steve n rose

Red WIng 841, Kogan’s 100 line

Question:
I spotted this piece at a local church auction and bought it for only $1. I didn’t even see the name on the bottom because it is very faint and doesn’t stand out.

It is 8.24" tall and 3.50" wide at top. It is cream colored.

Answer: Hello

this is a shape from Kogan’s 100 line from 1939, there were 3 sizes, this being the smallest. Value is around 50.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
