Just to whet your appetite for treasures to come we'll be giving you a SNEAK PEEK once a month showing you items we've found and will be available at our next event.
I was fortunate to come upon an Estate sale that had lots of Red Wing pottery, stoneware, and yellow ware. I had not seen so much of this in one place as at this sale. I LOVE all these bowls for many reasons. I use them in mixing large amounts of dough as well as sitting on the table filled with fruits of the season to name a couple of uses.
Country Living says, "Yellow Ware is cherished for its charm and durable utility. Yellow ware bowls were staples in 19th and 20th century kitchens." Today these continue to be prized even when well worn and are highly collectible. The colors I have are yellow and "natural" with blue rims.
I also found a Red Wing bowl in the Reed pattern. It has a 11" diameter and is green in color with vertical ribs. I have one exactly like it that was passed down to me from my Grandmother. I use it all the time for mixing big quantities of goodies like cookie dough. It still looks like new though it has been well used and loved through three generations and dates back to the 1940's. The bowl I have for YOU is in the same pristine condition. You will LOVE THIS BOWL!
I also purchased several pieces of the Red Wing Village Green collection but I'll save those photos for another SNEAK PEEK.
