“Misthrows” plate collection

Question:
Hello, We have a large set of redwing dinner plates that were my grandparents. They are "misthrows". My grandfather used to buy them from the warehouse about the early 1950′s. There are several colors and they are in very good condition. Do you know if there is a market for these kinds of plates? Thanks, Shannon

Bob White pepper mill and salt shaker

Question:
I purchased this Bob White tall salt shaker and pepper mill at a thrift shop for $2.99. I would appreciate any information you might have about the pepper mill. I’ve seen a similar Smart Set pepper mill on EBay, but haven’t come across any references to one in the Bob White pattern. The metal strip on the bottom reads " Verity Southall Altadena, Calif." Thank you! Colleen

Hamm’s Popcorn Set individual pieces

Question: What is the value of the individual pieces of the Hamm’s Popcorn Set.

 

Answer: 

The smaller bowls are worth around $200 each, the larger bowl $500 and the single salt or pepper shaker around $100.  These values assume the items are in excellent condition.  The large bowl has an obvious large chip, which would reduce the value by at least 50-75%. The pitcher was made in China, not by Red Wing, and does not belong with the other pieces.   I have no idea what the pitcher might be worth.
