The name Red Wing, in the world of pottery, means something different to various collectors. To some, it means Crocks. Big crocks, small crocks and everything in between. To others, it may mean Dinnerware and Kitchenware that is unique, with distinctive shapes, patterns and bold colors. And finally, there are those of us who love Red Wing for the vast array of Artware. Artware features a fascinating variety of styles and glazes in function and decorative pieces of pottery.

Aptly named, Red Wing Pottery had its earliest beginnings in Red Wing, Minnesota in the very late 1860's. After a fire in 1870, it reopened under the Red Wing name in 1872 and continued to expand and prosper through the next nearly 100 years. Red Wing closed its manufacturing doors in 1967. It is possible to place approximate dates on some items, due to the introduction of a particular glaze or mold; however, we are only able here to make our best guesses as to the ages of our pieces.

We have a number of Red Wing pottery items from the Artware category....this piece is just one of them:

This item is an example of the Bronze Line, a grouping of Artware items introduced and produced circa 1965, and so named for the beautifully rich iridescent bronze colored glaze that covers the outside of these pieces. The inside is glazed in a warm brown color that compliments and enhances the overall effect. It is most definitely one of my favorites.

The piece is called a Pitcher Vase and was created from the #947 mold. The Pitcher Vase, so named for its single handled, but spoutless shape, measures 5-1/2 inches tall by 7-1/2 inches overall. The top opening is 4 inches in diameter; making plenty of room for a flower frog or inner vase, or simply to put your hand inside to wash it. This piece is in exceptionally nice condition. I find no damage or signs of wear at all. It is a wonderful example of the creative glazing techniques used by Red Wing.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
