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. Eventually, under closer examination, I made out that it is Red Wing. There is also a number above the name, it is also hard to make out, but looks like 841 (?). 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

Piano plater – white – no lid

Question:
so I see lots of people on line saying they are chipped. and are selling them for 2 – 3 hundred dollars. With the chips? Is this normal? Nancy

Answer: Nancy

chips aren’t normal, but some pieces are a bit more delicate than others. lifting the lid off and on this piece, plus the legs, make it an easily damaged item. any item is worth what someone else will pay for it….
