Munising rolling pins??

Does anyone collect these, have information or know where I can find a list of the rolling pin handle colors?? I have just started collecting rolling pins. Because the Munising pins were made in the USA and are signed--I thought that might be a nice place to start. I have one each --green, red and natural handles. Is there different colors of the green? How about black? I know they have blue--saw one for $50.00 . thank you for any and all help.. Queen Bee

This web site may hold some information for you.

I have Munising pins but most because of there age and use are in very poor condition when I get them. Have a lathe in my shop where they are reconditioned and new handle retaining pins are made. Some pins I keep original and some are spiced up. Have some colors Munising never thought of, how is that for rare? These pins are for my enjoyment and use.

Different brands shown.
Munising did have handle variations as well as end configurations.

CW, yes there are different manufactures for rolling pins. Munising has their name 'branded' on the flat end of the roller. Most early (1900-1920) production pieces aren't branded-signed-etc.

I am just starting to do research and collect--so I am trying to find out as much as possible,, I would love to see other's collections as well. Thank you QB

How interesting, I have had a wooden bowl for years that a client gave me, it is stamped Munising on the bottom. I don't live that far from Munising Michigan but never thought that these things are collectable....hmmm.
