Red Wing 1216 vase

Question:
I have a white vase 8 inches tall 5 1/2 inches wide at the top. It has a flower with leaves on the front. On the bottom it says Red Wing USA 1216. I am 58 years old and my parents had this for as long as I can remember. I would just like to have some history on it or any information that you could give me. My Mother just passed last year so we are running across a lot of items we would like to know more about. Thank You! Peggy Stilger

 

 

Answer: Your 1216 vase is from the Magnolia Group and came in at least 2 sizes, and was produced around 1946. Value is approximately $65. Steve n Rose

6 gallon Red Wing Crock

I have a Red Wing glazed inside and outside crock with wooden handles. Printed on the outside of the crock is a red wing picture stamp, a large blue 6, stamp that says patented December 21, 1915, and a stamp that says Red Wing Union Stoneware co. Red Wing, Minn.

6 gallon large wing crock with lid

Question:
This crock and lid was my step fathers grandmothers. The lid appears to fit well. The crock itself is glazed with exception to the bottom. I don’t see any marks on the bottom. It has three stamps. The cobalt blue number 6, the red, Red Wing(About 4"), and the Red Wing, Union Stoneware Company, Red Wing, ????. oval, in the blue cobalt. It has an imperfection to the left of the stamps on the front, but it’s not actually a chip. It appears to just be a flaw from when it was made. There is one hairline crack in the glaze. The lid itself has 6 chips around the outer edge, and the inside of the lid looks to be in perfect condition. It has a wire handle(it may have had wood on it at one time.). It has a thick cobalt line around the top of the lid, and two thin cobalt lines that are on either side of the thick line. Below those is a thick line that appears rough, and without glaze or paint. I would like to know: Is the crock and lid an actual set? When were they produced? What condition would you say they are in? What is the approximate value of these? As well as any other pertinent information. Thank you for your help. Sincerely, Amy Setelia, Creswell, Oregon

Blue rooster or hen casserole, 249

Question:
Hello, I have a blue rooster or hen casserole dish or some kind of dish stamped Red Wing U.S.A. #249. It measures approximately 9inches tall from bottom to tail feathers,10inches long from beak to tail feathers, and about 5 and 1/2 inches wide. It is in beautiful condition. There is a white spot on the tail feather and I can feel that it isn’t as smooth as the rest yet it does not appear to be scratched; more like a scuff. It almost looks like the paint and glaze missed the pottery because the blue is lighter in some of the creases of the finely detailed feathers. There is no crazing and just shines beautifully. It is a darker blue. Can you tell me about this piece? It has been difficult to find anything on this item. I purchased it at a garage sell for $2.00. Thanks for your time regarding this matter. It is greatly appreciated and have a good day. Sincerely, Kim

Brick decoration butter crock and village green pitcher

Question:
i found these at a garage sale and was really wondering about the one with the brick moulding, the pitcher is clearly marked red wing and i think it’s worth about $20, both are in absolute pristine condition. Some guy tried to buy the brick mould butter crock, he said it was very rare, i have not sold it and really want to know what it is, it is not marked any where i can tell. thanks suge

 

Answer: Your estimate for the value of the Village Green pitcher is accurate. I know nothing about the butter crock; perhaps our stoneware expert is familiar with this design.

Larry

will pass this onto our stoneware expert, but I do believe Red Wing did do a few of the "brick" pattern butters. thanks, steve n rose
