Cookie jar with leaf decoration

Question:
Red Wing USA incised on bottom. Approx 10 " tall with matching lid. Lid knob has flower shape. The cookie jar is oval in shape with what looks like leaves on the surface, they are incised into the body of the stone ware. The glaze is a medium blue with no other colors. It belonged to my mother & I remember seeing it when I was a child. I am in my mid 60′s at this time. Thanks. Joann

Rustic Dinnerware mug, Red Wing?

Question:
I have what I believe is a Village Green Mug but the handle instead of being a loop is more like a vertical rectangle Starting at the top of the mug then dropping down to about 3.5" from the top and then tapering back into the body of the mug. I have seen many pieces over the years and the glazes and colors are characterisrtic. It has a bit of a primitive feel to it but I always thought that was the idea. What have you to say? Jerry

Bob White China – poisonous

Question:
We are having an estate tag sale. We have a set of Red Wing Bob White China. The appraiser told us a weird story that we can only sell it for display because the dishes were taken off the market and are considered poisonous. We doubt this as these dishes have been in the family for years and no one died from them. He was dead serious. He said any food item with lactose in it activates the glaze and the poison. Do you know of this? THank you Cathy
