Red Wing Gray-line bowl, 7 inch

Question: I would like to know the value of a sponge bowl I have.  Attached is a picture of one from ebay which is the same (although mine doesn’t have the crack mentioned in the one on ebay.  It appears to be in great condition. 

Size: 7 1/4″ dia x 4 1/4″ tall

Thank you.


Answer: Priscilla, this is a Red Wing gray-line bowl and most of these will be signed on the bottom like this.  Gray line is a softer type clay or firing and it does stain and crack much easier than other bowls.  So one must look it over very carefully.  Any imperfections and the value on these bowls just bombs.  Value in mint condition is $60 to $175 depending on size.  The larger the bowls the larger the value.  al
