Hearthside teapot

Question:
I purchased a Red Wing teapot today without a lid. The teapot is shaped exactly like the Bob White pattern teapot but this one has a brown spinning wheel and a teal blue rug on one side of the teapot and on the other side is a gold eagle and a gold and blue oil lamp. I would like to know the pattern and if there is a location I could purchase a lid. Thank you. Bonnie

Blue rooster or hen casserole, 249

Question:
Hello, I have a blue rooster or hen casserole dish or some kind of dish stamped Red Wing U.S.A. #249. It measures approximately 9inches tall from bottom to tail feathers,10inches long from beak to tail feathers, and about 5 and 1/2 inches wide. It is in beautiful condition. There is a white spot on the tail feather and I can feel that it isn’t as smooth as the rest yet it does not appear to be scratched; more like a scuff. It almost looks like the paint and glaze missed the pottery because the blue is lighter in some of the creases of the finely detailed feathers. There is no crazing and just shines beautifully. It is a darker blue. Can you tell me about this piece? It has been difficult to find anything on this item. I purchased it at a garage sell for $2.00. Thanks for your time regarding this matter. It is greatly appreciated and have a good day. Sincerely, Kim

Provincial Bakeware bean pot – “Kissing Don’t Last, Cookin’ Do”

Question:
Hello! I have a question regarding a bean pot I picked up at a thrift store. It is close to mint condition, but does have a bit of paint wear on one handle. My bean pot looks similar to that of the provincial line # 405. However, mine is shape # 402 (it seems a bit more bulbous in shape than that of the 405, other than that they are the same, having a lid that is not inset and handles). The reason I am asking, is that I cannot find the shape number of my pot anywhere, and mine was (my assumption) glazed by someone other than red wing. It has the saying "Kissin Don’t Last, Cookin’ Do" on the front with a kissing couple in between the phrase. This person signed there name with 1978 afterwards and it is under the glaze. Did Red Wing give away "blanks" for other people to paint or glaze on there own when they closed their doors? Thank you for any information you may have on this. I dont expect its worth much as most of the provincial bean pots arent. I am just curious as to where this pot came from and why the shape number is different from others, Thank you again! Kayle

Lute Song platter

Question:
I have a Red Wing platter in the Lute Song pattern. I am concerned that it might be a copy or fake. The marking does not have the red wing and it has the word "CHINA" embossed into the pottery. I don’t know if this means it’s a reproduction made in China or if somehow the factory marked this is china. Since I can only send 1 picture, I’m sending the picture of the marking. Karen
