Asian copy of Tampico coffee or tea pot

Question:
Did Red Wing make a small coffee pot (maybe it’s a teapot) in the Tampico pattern? The piece is unmarked, approx. 7" tall and 4-1/4" diameter across the bottom. It is wider at the bottom, then narrows at the "neck", then flares out again at the top. The handle is black and the knob on the top of the lid is black. Can’t find it in any of my books. Almost looks like a Futura pattern. If it’s not Red Wing Tampico, it’s a dead ringer. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Debby

Gift or Novelty Platter

Question:
I have four oval plates that I got from a lady that told me she got them for a wedding present over 50 years ago and has never used them. I cannot find them anywhere on the internet, including on redwingdinnerware.com. I was wondering if you could tell me anything about them. They are in excellent condition. They do have Red Wing USA on the back. I have attached a picture. Thank you Sheila

Red Wing M1495 & Damask dinner plate

Question:
I’d like the value for a yellow oblong footed serving bowl marked Redwing USA M1495. I also have 12 yellow/cream colored dinner plates labled "Damask" by Red Wing with the number 315. What is the value of a single plate? I’d like to sell these items in the near future. I don’t have any pics to attach.

Answer: Hi, your bowl is actually artware, from the fifties. Value around 15.00. I will defer the dinnerware to our other "expert". thanks, steve n rose

Gypsy Trail pieces?

Question:
At my parents cabin is a set of colorful Redwing dishes that we had thought were FiestaWare. Upon careful examination, we noticed some are imprinted Redwing and dated 1936. The dishes have are in cobalt blue, turquiose, yellow, and orange. There are about 6 plates, suacers, teacups, B&B plates as well as creamer and sugar. Is there any value to these or shall I donate them to a Goodwill Center?

Iris Dinnerware set

Question:
Hi, I have a set of Red Wing dishes that my grandma collected, as a giveaway, from the local grocery store back in the late ’40s. As far as I can tell, it’s never been used. My uncle says that Grandma just kept the dishes in the cupboard, and that was that. There are 8 dinner plates, saucers, cups, flat plates, and small bowls. There’s an oval serving platter, a dessert bowl, a relish tray, a sugar bowl with lid, a gravy boat, a cream pitcher and salt and pepper shakers. Everything looks perfect, except for a small nick at the tip of the creamer (?) dish spout (see pic). It seems like it’s just a bit of the glaze, not the actual pottery that’s nicked. Anyway, as I’ll never use them either, And my boy is getting near college age, I figured I’d sell the set. Any little bit helps… So I figured I’d ask the experts, and see what this might be worth, And if it should be sold as a set, or by the piece. I appreciate any info you could provide me. Thanks, Wayne VanBrocklin
