In 1936 the Red Wing Union Stoneware Company changed its name to Red Wing Pottery, Inc. Some of the various items of stoneware produced by the Red Wing Potteries of Red Wing, Minnesota range from vase, plates, dinnerware, wall pockets, coolers, jugs, figures and trivets. In 1967 the Red Wing Pottery plant closed its doors.
This scarce, as well as fantastic, embossed Red Wing Pottery ash tray was made in the likeness of the Mount Rushmore Monument in South Dakota. It expertly portrays the faces of G. Washington, T. Jefferson, T. Roosevelt and A. Lincoln. In addition to the faces, in raised letters, it spells out "South Dakota - Mt. Rushmore speaks to the ages - The fortitude of Washington -The vision of Jefferson - The vigor of T. Roosevelt - The faith of Lincoln". The ash tray measures 6 3/8" by 6 7/8" in size and is aqua blue in color. Marked on the underside "Red Wing - U S A". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
