1930-40 Red Wing Leaping Deer Flower Frog and Plate
Red Wing first started production in 1877. But times changed and so did the company. Artistic hand painting was added to the popular solid colors in a colorful variety of beautiful patterns and designs. Red Wing was, in fact, the only independent pottery maker in the country that continued this age-old art of hand painting on dinnerware, casual china and art pottery. Their designs gave the products a creative flair, an individualized touch that captured a unique market – quality informal ware – which is characteristically American. Although we had been making dishes for a long time, American potteries usually borrowed English craftsmen and so our products were English in temperament. But in the late twenties we began to evolve a native kind of design and our dinnerware developed a personality of its own in both design and decoration. This is the informal flavor and style in which Red Wing Potteries was a leader. American homemakers loved it, with more than 100 hand decorated patterns being made, and as many as a million pieces produced each year.
This is a wonderful Red Wing flower frog and plate set. The leaping deer is beautiful and the coordinating plate make an wonderful set. The cream color with the brown accent fit any decor. Perfect centerpiece for your table.
Exceptional set in that it is has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. There is a glaze line on the deer but is barely detectable. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. This item was inspected with a Mil-spec UVA (365NM) and UVC (254NM) high intensity ultra-violet light and no evidence of repair or modification was detected. The white spots are studio light reflections. Dimensions are below.
The Leaping Deer is 10 inches tall with a base of 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. The plate is 16 inches long with a base foot of 4 1/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches and 2 inches tall.
