Question:
I found three pieces of Redwing in the house I bought in the attic. One piece has the number "666";, weird but when and how much is this piece worth. Sue

Answer: Hi Sue

there are two different shapes for the Devil’s number. the first is an eyeglass shape, part of the doric line from 1960. value around 35.00 or so. the second is a fluted shape, with round balls on the feet, part of the neoclassic line, circa 1930′s, value around 60.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

Water cooler stand

Question:
Attached is a "water cooler" I believe, that I recently acquired at a family auction. I’d like to know it’s age and value, as well as anything more you can offer. If it was manufactured with a lid, that is gone. The only marking is on the bottom Red Wing Union Stoneware Co Red Wing Minn. It seems to be in great condition, though it leaks around the spigot (washer is dried)and the inside the bottom is water mineral residue. I would hesitate to try cleaning that until I know more. I greatly appreciate any history you can provide. Thank you! Kathy

Answer: Hi Kathy

we have one with a partial paper label, it held Radium water. the glaze would make it from around 1930, a brushed ware glaze, usually used on art pottery. fairly uncommon item, there are a few around, value around 250.00. thanks, steve n rose

Brushed ware pot with flower decorations

Question:
Hi – I recently found a pair of these. Someone suggested RW Brushware, and I found this site after the Red Wing book in my local library was no help. If so, is the motif roses? Each is 5" tall, 5.5" in diameter at the rim, and 3.5" in diameter at the base. I’ve attached a photo of the front. Here are direct links to photos of the inside and bottom, which I’ve posted to my Photobucket account: Front: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1924.jpg Inside: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1925.jpg Bottom: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1926.jpg Thanks for sharing your expertise. If you need any more information or more pictures, please feel free to let me know. Chuck

Red WIng 754

Question:
Hi, I am wondering what the number stands for on the bottom. I have a vase #754 it is green with 2 handles, but when I look it up by the number I only find a totally different vase in blue. So is the number a year and not a style. What is the meaning of the number? Heath

Answer: Hi Heath

it is shape 754, only this one is from around 1961. a few shape numbers were reused thru the years, so it can be a bit confusing. Value is around 30.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
