My NEW Etsy Find...you must take a peek. Such a bold and beautiful color for summer.So simple and so clean. This girls Redwing curves are almost as stunning as the robins egg blue color. In good vintage condition, make this the center of your vintage table. This is visibly marked REDWING on the bottom, but it is the old marking of Redwing Pottery.
