Red Wing Pottery Marks And Information

Updated on April 28, 2018

Red Wing is one of America's oldest pottery companies

By Sharon Stajda,

Red Wing Pottery History shows that this pottery company had real staying power, while other American pottery companies have failed and gone out of business, the Red Wing Stoneware company was founded in 1878, the company was located in Red Wing Minnesota. It was one of the earliest Midwestern potteries outside of Ohio. As a rule pottery factory that strayed from the eastern Ohio region were doomed, and soon after opening went out of business. But Red Wing showed remarkable staying power. As the population in the Mideast increased, Red Wings production of pottery increased. The business flourished.

In 1920, Red Wing expands its line due to the market's demand for a broader line of pottery. The first new item put into production at that time was a line of flower pots. Which was followed in later years by an assortment of art-ware, cookie jars, jugs, trays, candle holders, vases, and pitchers? In the depression years, a line of dinnerware was added to take up the lack of sales on the art-ware pieces, that due to the depression were now considered a luxury item.

Red Wing Pottery Marks/Hallmarks

Red Wing manufactured under its own name, and also under the name Rumrill which was sometimes spelled on the mark as RumRill. When the Rumrill mark was used, it was generally with the second r capitalized. The Red Wing company used many hallmark varieties. One such early mark being the word Red Wing Art Pottery inside a circle, they also used an impressed mark of the words Red Wing. At times followed by the mold or model number. The most elaborate mark was that of the company name(Red Wing) written across a badge in bold script.

The Red Wing Company closed in 1967. Several years later the company was reopened, and handmade, and decorated sal-ware was again produced. With each piece being signed by its artists, and the year the piece was made.

Red Wing Pottery is widely collected and continues to hold high market value.

      As a fun hobbie I bought and sold collectible ceramics for many years. Redwing cookie jars and wall pockets always made my a good profit when I could find them. Thanks for the great info lens.
