Red Wing stoneware
Stoneware is a type of pottery made from clay. The Redwing Stoneware Company was created in 1877 and known as one of the foremost producers of American stoneware during the 20th century. This auction includes a large selection of antiques from this venerable American institution. Some of the most remarkable pieces in this category are a 3-gallon water cooler (lot #11), a 15-gallon crock (lot #21) and a 1-gallon jug (lot #35).
Small, desk-sized bronze sculptures add a touch of elegance and dignity to an office or library. Those of highlander heritage can honor their forefathers with the Scotchman and two dogs piece by P.J. Mene (lot #12). Meanwhile, those who enjoy hunting might prefer a bronze figure of a bull moose (lot #23) or deer (lot #24). The bronze Bronco Buster by Frederick Remington is one of the largest pieces at 23 inches by 20 inches. The dramatic cowboy figure posed on top of a bucking bronco would make a remarkable addition to any collection.
Add a feel of vintage charm to any room with the addition of antique furniture. There are two Amish-made willow rocking chairs up for grabs (lots #56 and 57) that display a remarkable level of craftsmanship. In addition, the child-sized wicker table and two chairs would be perfect in a child's playroom (lot #3). But perhaps the most impressive piece is an oak drawer/towel rack bathroom set (lot #53). This large two-tiered set of drawers is made of solid oak and includes a rack for hanging towels.
