This beautiful matched pair of vases was produced by Red Wing Potteries in Minnesota for George Rumrill, a Texas salesman turned pottery producer. During the years 1931 to January, 1938, RumRill pieces made by Red Wing were given three digit mold numbers, such as the 689 impressed on the bottoms of these white clay vases. The design is part of the Empire Group, which used cornucopia shapes and was introduced in 1937. It's a soft matte jade green, a color not easy to find and named Green Gray by RumRill. One of the vases has RumRill impressed very clearly on the bottom, while on the other one it's there but faint.
The vases are 6 1/4 inches tall with oval bases measuring 3 inches by 4 1/4 inches. The mouth has a 4 1/4 inch diameter. Other than a few glaze nicks inside each vase, they are in superb condition. If you love Art Deco design, this pair of RumRill vases is perfect for you.
