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.
In 1929 Red Wing entered the field of glazed ware. The most frequent used high gloss glazes were yellow and light green; others included mulberry, light blue and dark green. This lovely, light green glaze, Art Deco motif vase consists of ten arched panels forming the side and tapering to create a round top and base. The panels alternate between undecorated and decorated with a deco design. The vase measures 7 1/2" in height, 4 3/4" opening at the top and 7 1/4" across the base. It is stamped in blue "Red Wing Art Pottery" and "187", circa 1929-1930's. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some overall light crazing.
