There was something in the rich limestone soil deposits found in Minnesota’s Goodhue County that was more than just a medium for local farmers to make utilitarian pottery pieces. What started as a cottage industry in the 1860s grew into one of the leading potting manufacturers in the United States before closing its doors in 1967. Having been in business for a century, Red Wing Pottery produced a prolific and varied catalog of products—literally something for every type of collector of American-made ceramics.
This unique and scarce "Banjo" wall pocket, shape number 908, was first introduced in 1939 and was reissued starting in 1960. Of the stringed instrument wall pockets, only the banjo and two versions of the violin was produced. The wall pocket measures 15 1/2" in length, 6 1/4" in width and is marked "Red Wing - USA - 908". It is white in color dark blue trim. There are no cracks, chip or repairs.
