Bit O' History: Red Wing Pottery – Red Wing, Minnesota In 1906, the familiar red wing stamp replaced older logos and was used until the pottery plant closed in 1967. Red Wing's dinnerware production is believed to have begun in the early 1930s , according to the Red Wing Collector's Society, Inc. Full scale dinnerware production started with the Gypsy Trail line in 1935. All-in-all, the company produced 31 lines (or shapes) and 104 different patterns. At the peak of its production in 1957, the Bob White pattern was said to be the most popular dinnerware line in the country. The more elusive patterns include Buds, Harvest, Wreath, and Delta Blue.
