Greyline bowl follow up

Question:
This is for Al again. I am the lady with the 12" bowl. Did you look at the design on it? I believe it is suppose to be a band bowl. Not a sponge bowl. That is why I think it is a mistake and perhaps rare. Did a little research on the 12" sponge bowl and it was suppose to be a banded greyline bowl. They made a mistake and sponged it instead. Hope this helps. Let me know if I am wrong. I attached a picture last time. Thank you for your help. Tina

Otherwise good condition. "RED WING" "USA" on the bottom. Marky

question from: meem1029@yahoo.com

Question:
I have a piece of {pottery?} I think it is a spoon rest, color is pale grey with a "red wing" pictured in the center of the "rest". On the under side is what looks like a stamp with blue ink. The stamp is a circle with the words "red wing stoneware co red wing, minn". There is also a second stamp marked 2nd, I,m sure means this piece has some flaws,as it does have a small chip on the edge and what looks like a crack, but the crack seems to be part of the piece. Is there any collectors that might be interested in this piece and what it might be worth ? Thank you for your information Sorry do not know how to upload a picture

Giraffee Planter – hobby shop

Question:
Hello, I was looking to confim that this is a Charles Murphy #896 planter.. Not signed But there is 3 letters on bottom (REE)? Is this orange glaze RARE? Chris

Answer: Hi Chris

this is the Murphy giraffe planter, but it’s a hobby shop item, not done by Red Wing. Molds were used by other people after the factory closed, this is one of those items. The glaze wasn’t used by Red Wing. Value maybe around 30.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

4 gallon lazy 8 crock

Question:
I just purchased a crock at an estate auction. After I won the man I was bidding against me asked if I knew anything about it. I didn’t other than I liked it. He told me it was a Red Wing Crock. I cannot find the mark online so I hope you can help me with age. It is 11 inches tall and the opening is about 10 3/4 inches. The handles are amazing and I love the brown glaze on the inside. The bottom isn’t marked but it’s concave. I heard someone mention that at the auction and they said it wasn’t Red Wing. I love it no matter what, but if I knew it’s history that would be welcomed information. Thank you! Kathryn
