Question: I have been trying to find info on this Dinner or lunch tray. I believe the pattern is lanterns or perhaps not. Pottery is not my area of expertise. I purchased a set of 4 of these for resale and am looking for any information and possible value. The trays are about 10″7 1/2″ they are divided 4sections if you count the one for the cup. Any information is greatly appreciated. Dave
The photos show a 12″ x 9″ supper tray in the Lanterns pattern. Lanterns was introduced in 1952 and was discontinued in 1955.
Red Wing introduced supper trays in 1951 and added them to many of their dinnerware lines over the next several years. These trays were made in two sizes: 10.5″ rounded square and 12″ x 9″ rectangular shape. Both of these were divided into three sections and had a place to rest a cup.
Supper trays in any Red Wing pattern are scarce today. In excellent, undamaged condition the value of a Lanterns supper tray would be $25 to $30.
