Of the three well-known products, my favorite is Red Wing pottery that refers to American stoneware, pottery, or dinnerware items made by a company initially established in 1861 by German immigrant John Paul. It changed its names several times until finally settling on Red Wing Potteries, Inc. in 1936. The pottery factory that started in 1861 continues to the present day under the names of Red Wing Pottery and Red Wing Stoneware. There was a halt in production when Red Wing Pottery Sales, Inc. had a strike in 1967 causing them to temporarily cease trading. The company still makes both zinc/Bristol glazed products as well as salt-glazed, hand-thrown, kiln fired items. (Credit Wikipedia)
