This tall stork figurine was molded of pale buff clay in the early 1930's. Multiple companies made art pottery resembling Red Wing's Brushware line. One of the most well-known is the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio and it's the company we believe produced this piece.

Brushware pottery is named for the process used to make it. The green stain was applied to the exterior and then partially wiped (brushed) off. The stain remained in the details, such as the feathers, eyes, legs and the grassy ground with the tree stump that this stork is resting on. The piece was then fired to set the stain, resulting in a matte finish.

Redwing Stoneware of Minnesota made Brushware pieces like vases and pots; the interiors were covered in a complementary color. This figurine was not stained on the inside, leaving the speckled clay visible. It is also not stamped with a maker's mark, which Red Wing did routinely.

The stork measures 10 1/2 inches tall, with an oval base 4 1/4 by 4 1/2 inches. It weighs 2 pounds and is in outstanding condition, with no cracks, chips or other damage or wear. While we've seen this piece referred to as a "garden ornament," this one has definitely been an indoor bird for almost 100 years. It's a handsome decorative item from the Arts and Crafts era.
