Brittany: lead, food safe, and value

Question:
I have some items that are the Brittany pattern. I have a 12" Chop Plate (Round Platter), Creamer, Round Vegetable Bowl, 1 Quart Round Covered Casserole (with lid), 1 Quart Round Covered Casserole (no lid). One casserole has crazed glaze. I have three questions:

1. Do they have lead?
2. Are they safe to use for food?
3. What is their approximate value?

Thank you. Carol

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

Dutch Girl Cookie Jar with blue dress and white apron

Question:
This cookie jar has been in my family for some time. The first I remember it was in my aunt’s kitchen (Chicago area)in the 50s; however, she may have acquired it earlier in New Orleans. I have researched it and cannot find anything like it. It looks similar to a Red Wing dutch girl jar, but it has no markings on the bottom. Approx 111/2in tall, the color is bright. There is some grazing inside bottom; none in the top. 3 small rub marks one in back, bottom edge of skirt; one in front, bottom edge of skirt; one at very tip of hat. Can you help me identify it?

Bob White metal stands and napkins

Question:
I heard one time about someone who knew of the metal stands being made to fit Bob White Dinnerware. Things like the Lazy Susan, Cruet and Casserole stands. Of course they are knockoffs but is this true? Also, there was someone who made embroidered napkins for some Red Wing Dinnerware patterns, is there a contact for this person. Lastly, I was told of cookie jar lids that were also knockoffs for the Bob White cookie jar, if this is true do you have a contact? Thank you! Don
