Magnolia dinnerware set

Question:
This set of dishes was donated to a thrift store that I volunteer at. The only information that I have so far is that it is from about the 1940′s. There are three different Red Wing marks throughout the set. The pieces are as follows (sizes are approximate): 7-10 1/4" dinner plates 19-10 1/2" dinner plates (some of these have a "burnt" look and crackled glaze) 14-7 3/8" plates 11-6 1/8" plates 4-8 1/4" serving bowls (1 has a chip on backside rim) 2-7 1/4" bowl (1 has a chip on backside rim) 5-5 1/4" bowl (1 has a chip on backside rim) 9-4" dia., 2" tall tea cups 11-6" saucers 3-8 1/2" casseroles (1 has a poorly repaired handle on lid) 2-4 1/2" sugar bowls (1 has a broken handle on lid, piecs missing) 2 creamers (not sure how to measure these!) 1-13" tall pitcher This set is noticably short on bowls, like maybe a box was missed in the donation. I would be very appreciative of any information you have about it (pattern, etc.) and if you have any idea of the value. It’s a very beautiful set in overall good condition, it’s a shame that it isn’t more complete! I also have a number of other pictures if you would like to see them also. Thank you, Cheryl

Tip Toe Butter dish

Question:
Can you please tell me about this Red Wing butter dish? Dish approximately 7 5/8”W X 4 1/8”D X 3/8”H Lid approximately 6 1/8”W X 2 ½”D X 1 7/8”H There are no chips or cracks that I can see but there are about a dozen minor imperfections that appear to have been part of the manufacturing and painting processes. Most are on the underside of the dish or lid rather than on the exposed surfaces. The lid has a simple floral design of gold, tan and brown on an off-white background. On the dish and lid there is a beige 1/2” wide band outlined in brown. On the bottom of the dish is a reddish-purple winged logo that says: REDWING HAND PAINTED U.S.A. 128

Red Wing M5011, Flower Pitcher, 2 gallon crock

Question:
I have 3 Redwing pieces I am curious about. The first is a bowl, beige/brown in color, 5 1/2 inches across, three small pointed legs, it has a gold & red Redwing seal on it and is stamped on the bottom "Red Wing USA M-5011. The second is a handpainted pitcher with flower motif, 9 inches high. It has the Redwing logo and the word "handpainted" on the bottom in red. Lastly I have a 2 gallon crock with the Redwing logo on the front, the #2 and a painted seal that reads "Redwing Potteries, Inc." in blue, also on the front. I am just curious of a need or want of these items and a value range. I thank you for your time. I am very sorry I am unable to provide pictures, as I do not have a digital camera. Thank you again and I await your response.

Answer: Hi, the first is a bowl from the Garden club line, circa 1957. value is around 20.00 or so.

The pitcher I believe is from a dinnerware line, but I can’t say which pattern it is, or give you a value

The crock has a value of around 75.00 or so, the larger the wing the better. thanks, steve n rose

Answer: I agree with steve n rose that your pitcher is likely from one of the dinnerware lines. But Red Wing made many different floral dinnerware patterns and identification of your pitcher from the brief description provided is not possible. A photo would certainly help; if that isn’t possible a more detailed description that includes the color of the pitcher and artwork along with a description of the artwork and the pitcher’s shape would probably suffice.
