Dan DePasquale and Larry Peterson provide a history of the Red Wing companies and identify the many unique stoneware items produced by them. Photographs include hundreds of items, many of which have never been seen in any book. For example, blue/white kitchen ware, churns, advertising pieces, and the Big Boy jugs. Additionally there are special sections of salt glaze water coolers, pitchers, and double stamp pieces. Particular emphasis has been given to unique items that have been found at the annual Red Wing Convention in Red Wing, Minnesota. Red Wing Stoneware Encyclopedia is a special book that will serve as an indispensable guide for identification and dating information. Both beginning and experienced collectors will find this book a valuable resource and a must-have addition to their library. 2010 values.
