In 2013 we saw a renewed interest in one of the lesser known but widely collected and prized American pottery companies.  Red Wing Pottery (1878-1967) made  Red Wing, Minnesota, a city better known for shoes, its home and began an art pottery line in 1929.  Under the direction of George Rumrill, Red Wing produced a series of Rumrill releases from 1932 until 1937.

This beautiful pair of classic Roman pitchers are footed and embossed with acanthus leaves, a favorite decoration used by Rum Rill and others in the 1930s and ’40s. The pair is finished in the Pompeian glaze an ivory-colored base that has been wiped with a brown over-glaze that helps to highlight the pattern. Both of the ewers are faintly bottom marked “Red Wing 448” and are in exceptional condition.

Apple Blossom Roseville Bud Vase & Rum Rill Tulip Vase are Today’s Daily Super Specials

Roseville Pottery, c. 1948 "Apple Blossom" Bud Vase, Mold #, 381- 6, List Price $205.00, Daily Special Price $130.00

Roseville Pottery, c. 1948 “Apple Blossom” Bud Vase, Mold #381- 6, List Price $205.00

Our first Super Special for Monday, December 9th  is from one of Billy Blue Eye’s  favorite American pottery companies – Roseville.

Roseville Pottery (1890-1954) is considered to have been one of America’s finest Art Pottery firms and certainly one of its most loved by ceramic collectors world wide. The “Apple Blossom” pattern was first introduced in 1948 and quickly became one of the most popular lines of its time. Collectors were attracted to the hand-painted twig handles, a design feature that is still admired today. This 6.25″ bud vase comes from a crisp mold and is precisely painted. Finished in a Terra-cotta colored glaze the vase is moderately crazed, typical for this pattern, and is bottom incised “Roseville U.S.A. 381-6.”

RumRill Blue Stipple Tulip Vase  c.1938-42

Rum Rill Pottery, c.1938-41, 9″ Footed Tulip Vase in Dutch Blue Stipple Glaze, List Price $95.00

George Rumrill was commissioned by Red Wing Pottery of Red Wing, Minnesota to produce a series of Rumrill releases under the Red Wing name from 1932 until 1937. At the end of his tenure with Red Wing he returned to Zanesville, Ohio and led Rumrill Pottery into a productive and creative period known as the Ohio Years. During this time a distinctive Rumrill line was successfully introduced that allowed Rumrill to become a respected producer of utilitarian ceramics and Art Pottery.

This 9″ tulip inspired vase is a product of the Ohio Years (1938-1942) and is finished in the Dutch Blue Stipple glaze, one of Rumrill’s most distinctive finishes.  Rising from its base the vase unfurls in a scalloped rim. It is in excellent overall condition but does have production pin hole glaze pops which are frequently found in Rumrill ceramics produced during this period. The vase is faintly bottom incised “Rumrill H-11.” (The product number)

Some Favorite Rumrill Vases Available Today at the Long Beach Antique Market

We all have our favorites.  From early on beginning in grade school we witnessed the concept of the chosen few in witnessing or being the “teacher’s pet”.  Certain bonuses or advantages were awarded ones that attained that role and we learned to apply that concept in many areas of our lives.

Even in collecting pottery we apply the “teacher’s pet” principle to the items in our collection we value the most by rewarding them the most visible display shelf. For me a few of my Rumrill vases have become “teacher’s pet and they proudly great visitors to my home in a most conspicuous place of honor.

Three Rumrill vases, c. 1938-42 (from left to right) 9″ Pale Blue Art Deco Vase, mold # H-8, $ 75.00; Miniature 4.25″ Vase with Partial Original Label, mold #A-5, $ 45.00; and 6″ Fan Five Finger Bud Vase from “Manhattan Group”, mold # 541, $100.00 SOLD

Today at the Long Beach Antique Market we will be offering some of our very favorite Rumrill vases and yes they will be displayed in a very prominent location.

Selling the “Blues” at the Long Beach Antique Market

During those lazy summer afternoons in suburban Chicago during the 1960’s when our gang of friends had settled under the Dutch Elm Tree in our front yard we’d frequently play  a question and answer game that eventually when we grew into our early teens became “truth or dare”. But in those earlier times when really knowing your best friend meant the world to you, the questions were fairly tame by today’s standards. The object of the game was to see who knew who best and by winning you could claim the title of “Best Friends” until the next round of the game was played in a few days or sometimes in a week or two.

Red Wing Pottery by Rum Rill, c.1925-1937 8.75″ Double Loop Handled Dutch Blue Stipple Glazed Fan Vase, mold #692, $130.00  SOLD

One of the questions that was frequently asked was, “What is my favorite color?”  As any one of the players that had visited my bedroom could tell you, the answer was blue;  blue walls, blue bedspread, blue curtains, blue throw rug and yes, even blue pajamas.

It should come as no surprise to you, my dear readers, that if you were to ask me today, “What is your favorite color?”, the answer would be….wait for it…can you guess….why yes, it is blue.  And again it should come as no shock to you then that in my personal collection of pottery that color is very well represented indeed.

Van Briggle Pottery, c.1940-60 9″ Twisted Handle 2.5″ Deep Bowl in Classic Ming Turquoise Glaze, $150.00 SOLD

Blue colored glazes are my personal favorite and when you visit Billy Blue Eye this Sunday, February 19th at the Long Beach Antique Market you will find a fine collection of blue ceramics available from many favorite pottery companies including Van Briggle,  Royal Haeger, Monmouth Western and of course Red Wing which under the Rum Rill pottery name offered many fine vases in the Dutch Blue Stipple Glaze some of which are pictured here.
