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

Red Wing 261 teapot, Gypsy Trail line

Question:
Hello, I acquired a piece of pottery that has stamped on the bottom "Red Wing USA 261". It is a tea pot. I think stoneware with grape embellishments that go around the top out part of the pot. It is tan in color and the grapes are antiqued with a darker color in the crevases. The lid is the same color but the knob looks like it’s a small grape in two leafs. I have attached a couple pictures. Thank you so much. Stephanie
