M 1498 vase designed by Charles Murphy

Question:

Hello,

I’m a glass collector, but I recently purchased this pottery vase and I’m trying to identify it. I have a few contendors but the one I’m leaning towards at this time is Red Wing. It is a pink speckle pattern with a pale blue, almost purple interior glaze. It is marked on the bottom with an incised mark but is hard to make out any words. I can see 3 lines with USA in the middle line. It does seem to fit the shape for Red Wing on the top but it’s really hard to say for sure.

It measures 10 1/2″ tall and about 6 1/2″ wide.

I would greatly appreciate it if you were able to shed any light on the subject.

Kind regards,

Helen

Answer:

Question:

I have a redwing stoneware pedestal with the markings Jiffy  5 Cents.  I do not have the top.  Do you know if a top is for sale? How much is it worth?

Red Wing 949, Elephant handle 374 and M 1512

Question:

These came from my parents home.  the 6.5 inch pink has 2 chips, marked red wing 949; the green is crazed, elephants handles, stamped in blue ink red wing pottery in circular but no number , about 6 inches tall, no chips;  the blue is 4.5 inches, imprinted red wing 374 no chips; the last is 4 inches, 2 cracks, marked M1512.

A friend suggested the green could be rumrill?  IT is high gloss.

Dating ?  Value?

Answer:

the 949 with the chips is worth around 10.00 or so, it dates to the 1940′s.  the green elephant vase is redwing, from around 1930.  the crazing is normal, value around 80.00 or so.  the other two, from around the 40′s timeframe, with a value around 25.00 each.  thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Duck Planter 914

Question:

I’d love to find out more about this piece that I just bought at a thrift store auction.  I was not familiar with Red Wing pottery before I made the purchase.  I love the color and the design. It is in great condition.  I’d like to collect more!

 It is a turquoise or teal colored, duck planter. Stamped “Red Wing 914″ on the bottom (photos attached). Measurements are approximately:
 5”H x 7”L x 4”W

Open back measuring 3 ½” x 3”

Is it authentic Red Wing?  I was afraid b/c after researching your site, I saw another piece also numbered 914 (female centaur, bronze line graze.) If mine is real, when was it made, was it a part of a series, what is its approximate value today?  Thank you so much!

Answer:

neat little planter.  this dates to around 1939.  sometimes the numbers were used over, for a different shape.  this is pretty common practice.  Value is around 80.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Rumrill 554 candlesticks, possible Manhattan group, circa 1937

Question:

I am not a member of your organization but I hope you won’t mind a question regarding a painter/decorator who I assume worked at Red Wing during the 1930′s.  I recently found a pair of candlesticks which are marked with an impressed 654 RUMRILL and the following in orange paint:  Painted By Myrtle Hunt Nov 13th 1937.  Since the base of the pieces appear to be akin to greenware or unglazed pottery I assume each piece was handpainted by someone at Red Wing or did Red Wing ship these to AK and have a RUMRILL employee paint them?
 
I would greatly appreciate any information or resource leads regarding these pieces.
 
Sincerely yours,
 
Jeff

Since writing to you I realized that the impressed model # is not 654 but rather 554 which I assume corresponds to the Rumrill Manhattan Line produced in the mid-30′s.  Also given that they were made in solid colors I suspect what I have found is likely akin to folk art rather than a factory product.  Regardless, I would welcome your thoughts.

Jeff

Answer:

Jeff
I am assuming these are cold paint decorations, not under glaze.  But you are right, Manhattan group, circa 1937.  Not sure if she was a factory employee or not…  still kind of interesting, none the less.  If they are under glaze, value around 100.00 or so, if not, maybe 45.00.  thanks, steve n rose
