WE ARE NOT WE ARE NOT REDWING COLLECTORS WE JUST PICKED THIS UP TODAY AT A FLEA MARKET BECAUSE WE THOUGHT IT WAS UNUSUAL THE TOP PIECE LOOKS LIKE A CUP WITH NO HANDLE AND THE UNDERPLATE IS ATTACHED NO POUR SPOT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE ORIGINAL FUNCTION WAS
This item is from the Gypsy Trail dinnerware line and was produced in the early 1940s. The catalog called this item a marmalade jar. Yours is in the shape of an apple but is missing the cover. I’ve attached a photo of a an apple marmalade jar with cover.
Red Wing made marmalade jars in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. The shapes include apple, pear and pineapple. Colors include yellow, turquoise, blue, orange, pink, and light green. Marmalade jars were available with an attached stand (under plate) like yours or with no stand. Red Wing also made a stand-alone stand could be purchased to go with jars without an attached stand.
