I am currently interested in purchasing a piece of pottery. It is a batter bowl with wood and wire handle. On the bottom is a marking that is a circle with the words Made in Red Wing. I would like to know if this a genuine article from the Red Wing Pottery and if so, approximately what year it would have been created. Thank you, Zach
Zach, I did not receive a photo or description of this bowl but would think with what you have given me that this is an original Red Wing batter bowl. In fact, it sounds like a Red Wing Gray Line Batter Bowl. The Gray Line bowls have a blue & red sponge band which is located about 3/4 of an inch from the top of the bowl. This batter bowl was produced by Red Wing in the late 1920’s and is highly sought after by Red Wing collectors. Al Kohlman
