Red WIng 841, Kogan’s 100 line

Question:
I spotted this piece at a local church auction and bought it for only $1. I didn’t even see the name on the bottom because it is very faint and doesn’t stand out. Eventually, under closer examination, I made out that it is Red Wing. There is also a number above the name, it is also hard to make out, but looks like 841 (?). It is 8.24" tall and 3.50" wide at top. It is cream colored.

Answer: Hello

this is a shape from Kogan’s 100 line from 1939, there were 3 sizes, this being the smallest. Value is around 50.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

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

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
