Question:

Hello,

 

This vase is marked “Red Wing”, and also has “JP 79” inscribed on the bottom.

 

I’m assuming that someone used a Red Wing mold to produce this. Could that

be correct, and does it have any value?

 

Thanks!

Jane

Answer:

Yes, this little pitcher was undoubtedly made by a hobby potter or art school student using an old Red Wing mold.  Such pieces are actually quite common because Red Wing sold all their molds when the business folded in 1967.  These pieces have no value as a Red Wing collectible, but some collectors like to acquire them as curiosities.  They seldom sell for more than $25 and usually quite a bit less than that.
