Red Wing Console Bowl 758


 I came accross this redwing pottery piece when I was cleaning out my Mother-In-Laws chicken house.  Would you be able to tell me about it (what exactly it is, approximate value, where made, etc)  I would say it is some kind of planter but really not sure.  It is approximately 4 inches tall & wide and 12 inches long.   It has a pink glazing on it.  No cracks or chips but does have a few light stains from a plant being potted in the container.   On the bottom it has 758 Redwing.   A picture is attached.  Thanks Shirley

Answer: Hi Shirley
this is a console bowl, from 1953.  Value is around 25.00 or so.  thanks, steve n rose

Delta Blue Dinnerware



We have just aquired 70+ pieces of Delta Blue, only 2 or 3 have small chips, and some have a few blow outs which is normal….I need a value guide to sell this.  I have about 15 serving pieces



The values I provide are my current estimate of what a knowledgeable buyer would be willing to pay a knowledgeable seller, which in my opinion is fair market value.  Actual selling prices difficult to gather because they are generally not available to the public.  This is especially true for a hard to find pattern like Delta Blue.  My values assume excellent undamaged condition and are for one of the item described. 

Dinner plate:  $60-75
Salad plate:  $15-25
Cup & saucer:  $20-25
Saucer:  $7.50-10
Fruit bowl:  $15-20
Creamer:  $20-25
Sugar with cover:  $20-25
Oval divided veg dish:  $30-35
Round veg bowl:  $30-35
15″ oval platter:  $40-50
Pitcher 4 cup size:  $40-50
1 gallon coffee pot with side knobs and cover but no stand:  $80-100
Butter dish with cover:   $40-50
4 quart casserole with cover and stand (under plate):   $75-90
Teapot with cover:  $90-100
Bean Pot with cover 2 quart: $50-60
Waffle dish cover:  $100-125  (very rare piece)


Collection of stoneware crocks and bean pots


My 53 year old wife remembers her grandmother making pickles in the 8 & 30 gal Red Wing crocks (in the attached pictures) as a young child.  There doesn’t appear to be any chips or cracks in any of the pieces and the handles also appear in good shape.  We are almost sure that the 2 gal crock with the brown glaze interior is a Red Wing and we believe that the small crocks with covers and the (1-2 quarts) tri-side jug with screw top may also be from Red Wing.  Would you please let us know if these are also Red Wings?  We would also appreciate any comments concerning the pieces and an estimated values. 

Thank you,

Gregg & Amy

Red Wing Gray-line casserole

Question: Hello and Good Evening,
I’m just now learning about this beautiful pottery and seeing all the pieces people write to you about.  So I need your expert opinion if you don’t mind……..
I bought this beautiful piece at a garage sale sitting by it’s lonesome for $2.00.  All other items the lady was selling were Christmas items way overpriced.  I saw this crock and loved it……..I asked her “How much please?” and her response was “$3.00” So obviously I got her down to $2.00
The item is in MINT condition…….Clean with no chips or cracks.  I don’t think it’s ever been used.
Would you be able to put a value on this for me?  Would be greatly appreciated…..Hoping I found a treasure…….
Thank you and make today a good day!
Irvine, CA.

Answer: In mint condition with the lid, this Red Wing Gray-line casserole has a value between $275 & $300.  A great find!    al

My Mother and I have recently acquired the 6 crocks shown in the attached pictures.

5 gallon salt glazed crock with lazy 8 with ribs is a Western Stoneware Crock.  No idea of value

Theft of Red Wing Stoneware Reported to RWCS Office

 Red Wing Stoneware Theft Reported from a Amboy, MN Antique Shop

Amboy, MN – On April 16th a theft occurred at the Villager Antiques in Amboy Minnesota. At least 20 pieces of Red Wing pottery were stolen from the antique store.

Among the stolen pieces were several water coolers, quite a few jugs, including the older brown ones, and some chicken waterers, many very old items as well as some of the Red Wing collectors pieces from past conventions. The most recognizable piece is a very distinct early 4 gallon salt glaze crock with a cobalt blue bird decoration (seen at right). This crook is not marked Red Wing but is an early piece. Nothing else appears to have been taken from the shop. Photos of other pieces stolen are below.

Anyone with information regarding this theft is asked to contact Mankato Police Department of Justice in Mankato, MN at (507) 304-4814 Case number #12-0372.
