The Blue Ribbon Foundation’s Pottery Auction starts on Thursday, November 10. Have you signed up to participate? 

These collectible pieces would be a special addition to your current pottery collection or a beautiful gift to any Iowa State Fair enthusiast.

Maybe you have a fun connection to one of the pieces or a specific year. I was a Blue Ribbon Foundation intern in 2011 (Beehive Jug). I started as a full time employee in 2013 (Stein). I enjoy planting flowers every spring. The 2002 Large Flower Pot or the 2020 Flower Pot with Saucer would be great additions to my front porch.

Just remember, it’s more than a pottery piece. These donations go toward continued improvements on the historic Iowa State Fairgrounds.

The Details: The pottery auction will run Thursday, November 10 beginning at 10:00 a.m. (CST) to Sunday, November 13 at 8:00 p.m.

Bidding is only done online through this website. To bid, you must register as a bidder and provide the required information on the form, including a valid credit card number.

In addition to the collectible pottery pieces, a few other specialty items are include in the online auction.

  • Mini matchstick holder crocks
  • Iowa State Fair Sesquicentennial Red Wing Pitcher
  • One-of–a-kind sample design pieces made by various potters
