Red Wing 310 large planter, initials AM

Question:
Hello there I have a large planter with the grape cluster/oak leaf pattern. Labeled "Red Wing USA 310" It stands approximately 10" high and is 12" wide at the top. It is a glossy tanish/very light brown in color… It also has the initials "AM" under the glaze…was there a specific artist or potter with those initials. It is in decent shape with a small bite here and there, no cracks or major chips. I do not know much about RW items and I am learning as I go. I have never seen any initials on the bottom of any RW piece. I know it must be hard to determine value without a picture…but I am most interested in the initials and why they would be there. Thank you for your time. Bernie

Answer: Hi Bernie

No pic necessary, your piece is from 1966, a year before Red Wing closed it”s doors. I’m not familiar with who "AM" would be. sometime the employees did put an inital on them, or to someone they knew. It could also be an aftermarket or hobby shop item, done after Red Wing closed. some of the molds were used by hobby shops after the factory closed. A lot of those pieces do carry initials. The original glaze color is an ivory background with a dark brown glaze "wiped" in to highlight the detail. that would tell if it was done at Red Wing or later on. Value is around 45.00. condition is everything, the dings will hurt it’s value. thanks, steve n rose

Red Wing Vases: two 1198 and 220

Question:
I have 3 red wing vases that belonged to my Mom. They stand about 10 inched high, the makings on the bottom are "Red wing USA 220" and two matching vases marked "Red wing USA 1198". The 220 was given to my Mom and Dad as a wedding present in 1944, the other two I do not know of any history. What do I have? They are all three in very good condition,almost perfect, no chips cracks or crackling. The inside of the two 1198’s are aqua inside and I can see some of that crackling on the inside bottom. Thank you for your time Elise Barber Antoni

Answer: Hi Elise

The 1198’s are from 1943-44, they came in a few different sizes, this being the smallest. They have a value of around 65.00 each. Check the other vase, the numbers aren’t matching anything I have. the 220 is a ewer with a dragon’s head for the handle. Sometimes they are quite difficult to read. hope this helps, thanks, steve n rose

Pottery lamp with leaf decoration

Question:
We are trying to determine whether a lamp that belonged to my wife’s mother is a Red Wing or not. The ceramic part of the lamp is about 20" tall, and the only markings on the lamp can be seen in the attached picture. The electrical portion of the lamp still mostly works but does tend to short out. The pottery portion is in very good condition (no chips or marks that I can see). If more details or a better picture are needed, just let me know. Thanks Nathan

Answer: Hi Nathan

This doesn’t appear to be a Red Wing item. I’m not sure who made it. Wish I could be of more help. thanks, steve n rose

USA 134 bowl

Question:
Thanks for taking time with my question, and this is a fabulous site! I recently found this bowl, or maybe a planter, at a yard sale. Only marked USA and 134, measures 7 1/2" long and 4" across middle (widest) point. Has some 3 petal flowers on sides, maybe freesia(?). In very excellent condition, has a clay fleabite and bottom inside has a hump, all under glaze. Any ideas on maker, though it does seem like it could be Red Wing, and of course I am curious about value as well. Again thanks for your time and I am linking to this site on my personal pages immediately!

 

Answer: Hello

thanks for the compliments! this item doesn’t match up with any Red Wing pieces I know of. I’m not sure who the maker is. Fairly simple form, probably from the 40’s or early fifties. Value maybe around 20.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
