Answer: Hi Susan

The 1039 dates to around 1940, it’s considered a console bowl, with a value of around 25.00. thanks, steve n rose

 

The plate with handle is called a tidbit tray. It is a Desert Sun dinner plate with a handle that was attached by Red Wing Potteries staff. Tidbit trays were not shown in brochures for dinnerware patterns. But they were pictured in Gift & Novelty brochures. Various sizes of plates and bowls were pieced together into 1, 2, 3 and even 4 tiered tidbit trays. The plates and bowls used were usually surplus or from discontinued patterns. The Desert Sun patten was introduced in 1962. In excellent condition this tidbit tray is worth $10 to $20.

Red Wing dinnerware- need pattern information

Question:
My mom purchsed a set of dishes from a garage sale. The owner found them in their attic and thought they were ugly. My mom paid $20 for the box. They are difficult to explain. When she unpacks, if they sound like true red wing pottery, she will take pictures. Some have "RED WING USA" on the bottom. It is part of the dish. It is not printed on. Some have printed information. The piece I am holding says, "RED WING HAND PAINTED OVENPROOF U.S.A. 119". One piece has "RED WING HAND PAINTED" printed inside a pair of wings, then below it "USA 104". All of the bowls have a place to hold them, but it’s not a handle. The dishes have a unique shape, which is why she bought them. If the information on the bottom sounds like they may be worth investigating I will take pics for her. Most of the pieces are numbered are few have chips. She likes antiques and unusual items, but she does not care to investigate them. I have found that a few of her "finds" needed more TLC than she was giving them. Thank you for your time, Tana
