You can read about the history of Red Wing Pottery at their online site http://www.redwingpottery.com/our-history/our-history.

This speckled serving bowl is fairly large as you can see by the size of the tomato beside it.  Nice mid century modern style would suggest it is dated from the 1950’s.  In very good overall condition showing little wear on the inside.  Quite versatile piece as it is ovenproof.  Nice bowl to warm up the dinner rolls in for supper.

This will be available at my booth at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market to be held at The Fieldhouse at Carleton University, Bronson Ave. & Sunnyside Ave. Ottawa Ontario,  on October 17th and 18th, 2015.  I will be bringing many of my mid century modern dishes and glassware, kitchen ware, teak bowls, maple salad bowls by Baribocraft, and Danish modern glassware by Iittala.  Look for the booth ‘Fab Finds’.

This bowl will be priced at $45.

Phaltzgraff Country-Time Serving Bowl by Ben Siebel Design 1952

Pretty hard to find these pieces by Phaltzgraff.  The pattern is called Country Time and it was designed by Ben Siebel for Phaltzgraff in 1952.  This one is quite large  and would hold a good sized salad.  The pattern on the sides looks like a stylized flower or vegetable.  The colour is Saffron and it is speckled with a darker colour.  Very mid century modern looking dish. The pattern on the inside appears faded but the glaze is still shiny so I am not sure if the pattern was supposed to be  a light contrast or not. The pattern on other pieces I have seen on ebay appear to be darker.  Could just be from a different lot or could be from use although the inside of the bowl does not appear to be scratched nor showing signs of wear.

Second photo shows size comparison to other items.

Available for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Open daily, 10am to 5pm, year round, only closed on Christmas day.  Plenty of free parking behind the store.  Nice old heritage building with 5000 square feet which houses 55 vendors currently.

Priced at $45.00
