Red Wing Shape, hobby shop piece

Question:
I have a Red Wing Vase measuring 12 1/4" at the top of the Higher of the two lips. It is a pea green in color with Orange specks throughout. No cracks, chips ect…It does have glazing cracks that are within the glaze itself. The bottom reads Red Wing and the number is 810 or 818 or even 816, I cannot tell for sure as orange specks go across the last number and It is hard to read. Lisa

Answer: Hi Lisa

this is a Red Wing shape, from the 60′s, but it’s a "hobby shop" piece. That means it was done by someone other than Red Wing. The glaze isn’t correct. The plant closed in 1967, molds were sold off. Some molds were used by other companies, with different glazes. thanks, steve n rose

5 gallon large wing crock

Question:
I have a red wing marked 5 with the wing, oval reads RED WING Union Stoneware C? Red Wing, Minn. The inside you can see a crack along the bottom edge and seen lightly on the outside. Has a chip you can see in pic. This one has a casted hole in the bottom. Also a black line goes across the bottom. Not knowing if that is factory or someone did this? Not chips around it and really clean condition. It doesn’t have any place for handles like I have seen in some of them. Thanks for your advice! Paula
