Van Briggle: bowl and frog, shell and tulip vases

Question:

Hello!

I have a few pieces of Red Wing Pottery, and while reading your website, noticed that the Splittgerber’s also know about Van Briggle pottery!  It’s my lucky day!  My mother gave me three pieces of Van Briggle that were my grandmother’s and while I’ve been able to find information about them, I’m not certain what they are worth.  Of course, they are priceless to me, as they were my grandmother’s, but more information about them would be nice.  I’ve attached photos of them.  The last two, I think are pretty run of the mill.  But the first one (planter with frog) looks like it was signed by Anna Van Briggle.  I hope you can see the signature, as it is very faint.  In the last four photos, I’ve tried to capture her signature. It says, “Anna Van Briggle Colo Springs”. I’ve not seen examples of her signature. I’m wondering when they were made and their value. They are all in mint condition, without any chips or cracks. Thanks for all you do!

Answer:

I love van briggle questions!  the bowl and frog are from the 1955-68 timeframe, it was just a new marking they came up with, (anna van)  most were done in the gloss glazes.  value around 40.00.  the shell and tulip vase are from the 40”s-60′s eras, so they were probably all bought at the same time.  the shell is worth around 50.00, as is the tulip vase.  thanks, steve n rose

816 Hanging Planter, 1593 candleholders, and M-5007 compote

Question:

 

Hello,

Several years back, I attended an auction where a large amount of Red Wing pottery and stoneware was sold.  I was taken by the beauty of the Artware, and purchased about 15 pieces, attempting to span different lines, and still stay within some semblance of a budget.  I now have Bronze Line, Chromoline, 2300 anniversary, etc.; however, I am stumped to find any information on two of my items / set:

 

(1)           #816 basketweave hanging planter (which I love).  It measures about 9” tall, not counting the chain etc. and 5-3/4” in diameter, with the planter bowl about 4”deep.  The glaze is a bisque or matte brown on the basketweave areas and a glossy chartreuse on the remainder.  

 

(2)          A three piece set with #1593 candleholders and an M-5007 compote. The candleholders are 4-3/4” in diameter and 1-3/4” tall.  The compote is 7” in diameter and 4-1/2” tall. The pinkish beige glaze is unique, in that it is not a solid finish, more like a pigment that was mixed in and not completely dissolved (I’m sorry that is a terrible description, but the best I can come up with). Any help will be appreciated.

 

We still have family in Minnesota, and after watching your video, a visit to your museum is a must for the next trip north.  We currently live in north Florida, and we do not see Red Wing down here, so I enjoy showing it off. Perhaps if I join we can learn more through the newsletter, and maybe attend a summer function.

 

Thanks again,

Claudia

Answer:

the 816 hanging planter is from 1962, value around 45.00 or so.  the candleholders and compote, date to the mid to late fifties.  I am assuming these are in the fleck glazes, pink with specks in them.  Value for the set is around 50.00.

Red Wing 764 and creame and sugar sets

Question:

I have attached some pictures of items that  I was wondering if you could tell me what they are worth.  One is a pedestal 2 handled bowl #764. I have only been able to find 2 online, one in pink  & one in a solid green, but neither had a price on them.

 

Also, I have attached a picture  of 2  sugar & creamer sets. They are not marked Red Wing, but look very close to a set I saw on your website from the Gypsy Trail line.  Are these Red Wing?  If so, what are they worth?

 

Thanks so much for any help you can give!!

 

Wendy

Answer:

Wendy

The sugar and creamer in the photos were not made by Red Wing. They are similar in style to the “snack set” sugar and creamer from Gypsy Trail but are larger and have a more exaggerated shape. Most likely your set was made by Pearl China. Pearl China used gold trim on many of their items but Red Wing did not. One web site currently offers a similar creamer and sugar set marked Pearl China for $25.

Red Wing vase 196 with crystaline type glaze

Question:

Hi,

I purchased this Red Wing Art Pottery vase from an estate along with some Roseville pieces and have been unable to find out any information on this particular glaze. It has the Red Wing Art Pottery ink stamp on the bottom with a raised 196. I am aware that there are “hobby shop”

pieces out there, so am wondering if this may be one of those, although the time frame for this particular piece doesn’t really fit considering where I got it. The inside of the vase is white except along the upper part where an underglaze was sort of dripped down on the inside of the neck. The black design has the look of peacock feathers and fern leaves (?). Any information including value that you can give me will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kathy

Answer:

kathy
I’ve seen a few of these early forms with a crystalline type glaze, altho not quite like this.  is it paint?  it seems to have texture to it.  the original vase is quite smooth.
 
if it’s actually glazed, I would say around 300.00 or more.  thanks, steve n rose

Doric line console bowl

Question:

 

I’d like to ask the experts what they think my footed bowl is worth, but I couldn’t figure out how to send a question and photos to the experts from that web page.

 

I am attaching my photos and hoping that you will forward it to the appropriate expert.  I would like to sell the bowl, but I have no idea what it is worth.  I’m in the process of getting ready for a yard sale and I came across this bowl in a box of stuff I inherited from my mother.  I’m hoping that it is worth more than what I could get at my yard sale.

 

Thank you,

Deb

Answer:

Hello Deb
this is from about 1960, part of the Doric line.  Not worth a fortune, but still around 40.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose
