Pink Plate with pear, apple, and grapes on the cups, salt and pepper and plate

Question:
Purchased during 1950′s probably 1953 o4 54, pink squared sectioned plate, with cup, surgar, creamer with a pear, apple and grapes on it. Would like to know the pattern name please.

It’s not mine, but my mom’s and she donated it to an auction. She wanted proof of value. It was purchased in 1952 or 53 at Red Wing. Pink background with pear, apple and grapes, section off, cup, salt and pepper, square plate with rounded edges. That’s about all I can tell you. I’ve gone to the site, but can’t seem to find it.
No photo available.

Thanks. Marylin

Dark orange tea pot, Red Wing

Question:
Hello~ I collect teapots, and recently I found a small orange-colored teapot (photo attached) with Red Wing very faintly impressed into the bottom (it appears I can only attach one photo here, but I do have a picture of the mark), with no other numbers or marks. I know that sometimes reproductions have very faint marks and I haven’t found this mark on any of the websites I’ve checked, which makes me doubt its authenticity. The teapot measures 5 inches tall and about 4 inches across and has no damage. You can see the impressed circular decoration in the photo. Can you give me your opinion as to whether it’s authentic, its approximate age, and value (if any)? Thank you! Anita
