I am curious wether or not this is an authentic piece of Red Wing pottery and what collection it belongs to? The pitcher is light blue in color and a creamy/white inside.

Quartette beverage server and Red Wing USA 415 dish

Question:
I would like to know date, design, name of red color and value of this matching Red Wing coffee server and scalloped dish. Dish is marked ‘Red Wing USA 415′ Coffee server lid has tiny chip under edge (not visible when lid is on) and hairline crack as a result; ‘tab-like’ handle on lid was broken off mid-way and re-glued slightly off-center (ugh!). Condition is excellent otherwise. Would like to sell both. Looks like ‘Lotus’ coffee servers I’ve seen in other colors, shown without the dish. Thank you! Kathy
