How can I find out information on this piece? I have seen nothing like it on any site that has Ernest Sohn.
Very interesting piece! In the late 1950s/early 1960s Ernest Sohn obtained pieces from the Village Green pattern from Red Wing and modified them to be sold by his Ernest Sohn Creations company. This “swinging gallon coffee server” includes many of Sohn’s signature touches.
Red Wing sold a similar server as part of its Village Green pattern. Red Wing’s version had a green cover and a black metal stand.
Sohn’s version uses only the server from Red Wing; all other parts have been replaced by Sohn. The copper cover with large wooden knob and the rattan wrap on the handle are classic Sohn features. The stand is similar in concept to Red Wing’s stand but is fancier and made of a different metal.
