Blue cooler with grape decoration

Question:
Hi, I really appreciate your being available to answer questions. I found this water cooler at a New Jersey flea market and have been told it’s possibly Red Wing, but haven’t been able to find anything that looks like it, not only on your site but anywhere else. It’s about a 2 gallon cooler, lid missing, color: aqua or light green. If you recognize this, any information would be much appreciated. Thank you, Jean

Basket weave bowl, 916

Question:
I have this brown bowl that I have been able to find nothing on. It has the design of a basket weave and it has a strange shape, almost like someone grabbed the top of it and squeezed. There are some definite flaws on it that looks as though something happened during the firing process. Almost like the bowl touched the inside wall of the kiln. It measures 8x6x4.5. The bottom says Red Wing U.S.A 916. Can you tell me about this piece, along with the value? Thanks so much! Melody

 

Answer: Hi Melody

this shape does have a pinched in top, that’s normal. It’s from 1965. Value is around 25.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
