Circa: 1953
Manufacturer: Red Wing Pottery
Beautiful vintage large flat bowl or standing plate made by Red Wing Art Pottery to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company. Made as part of the titled Anniversary Line or Anniversary Series which began manufacture in 1953, this bowl is marked on the underside with "Red Wing U.S.A. 2307" indicating the 2307 item/style number. It came out of the home of an older person who is believed to have been the sole owner.

Through some online research, we have read that this line was made in two colors, with one being the burgundy with an overlay glaze in gray, which is what this is. The burgundy color in person is richer or darker than what appears in the images due to the camera lighting (which also creates the white "hot spots" which you see in some of the 8 images). It is a true rich, medium dark burgundy color like that of some fine wines, with a light gray towards the outer edge and some burgundy "bleeding" color surrounding a dark somewhat circular line where the two colors meet. This antique piece has a round slightly flared topside with a square base. Outer topside diameter measures about 14 11/16 inches, with the piece on a 7 inch square burgundy colored base that has an inner circular opening measuring 5 1/2 inches in diameter, through which you can see the common 3 circular points from which the piece was separated from its mold during manufacturer. The large plate or bowl sits about 3 inches in height.

While very striking and in overall very good condition, it does have a few flaws. We've shown in one image of the underside square base that there is a rubbed spot in one corner with many other nearby scratch lines. In another image we've shown on the topside edge there are some dark lines in the gray outer edge due to age wear/scratching. Overall the piece has no chips, cracks, crazing, or major large flaws. There are, however, also a number of small line scratches in the large center burgundy section topside which are not apparent from a distance but you will see when looking close-up. There are a few raised bubbles/spots in the topside glazing and other scratches, rubbed spots, general wear/aging. But while not mint, this old piece is still very, very nice & impressive. It would look lovely on display as a table centerpiece or as a focal point for a Red Wing pottery collection.

For shipping purposes, this piece is heavy, weighing over 4 pounds unpacked, and will require a large sturdy box for protection. We highly recommend purchasing the postal insurance due to size and value.
