This is a rare Red Wing/Rumrill black gloss glazed #52 shape water or wine jug/ewer/pitcher with its original matching stopper. Based on my research I believe this #52 style jug came out in the 1930s, and over an undetermined number of years it was produced in several different finishes. I have seen photographs of 3 finishes besides this one - a celadon green shiny one, a matte variegated yellow/green finish called goldenrod, and a bright yellow gloss finish that was pictured on the front of a 1997 Red Wing Collector's Society Newsletter. Apparently this style jug early on in its history was manufactured by Red Wing Art Pottery Co. of Minnesota, even though the design was provided by George Rumrill of Rumrill Pottery (Arkansas). For a period of at least 5 years Red Wing produced all Rumrill Pottery. This style jug/ewer/pitcher can be found offered as Shape #52 in early Rumrill catalogs where it was listed under Novelties.

This jug from its bottom to the top of the knob on its lid measures about 9" high. The measurement from spout to edge of handle is about 6" and the bottom diameter is 3 1/4". There is no visible remaining manufacturer's mark on the piece.

The condition of this piece is one of the best I have found in my research. As far as I can determine it is without defects, flaws, or any kind of damage with a beautiful shiny glazed finish without crazing. It's a great specimen of its category.

Perfectly described and more beautiful than photo. Hope to use it as a candle tray. Looking for the right candle holder to protect the enameling from dripping wax.
