Basket weave bowl, 916

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
