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.

Hearthside Dinnerware

Question:
My neighbor has a partial set of redwing dinnerware and would like to find out the pattern name and value if possible. All of the pieces have the same background color and glaze, a beige speckled color. All of the pieces have a blue and tan striped rug on them also. Pieces then also have either an early American style rocking chair and eagle, a spinning wheel or a round decorative table on them. The pieces she has showed me all say RED WING HAND PAINTED OVENPROOF U.S.A. The bread plate is number 232, a large soup bowl, which is a triangular shape, is number 240 and the salad plate has no number.She has 6 cereal bowls, 5 coffee cups, salt & pepper set with eagle on, 7 dinner plates, 6 salad plates, 8 saucers, 2 large soup bowls, gravy bowl w/lid and a large serving bowl w/lid. Some of the pieces do have chips in them. Thank you for your help.

Red Wing Apple Marmalade Jar

Question:
Hi! I have what I think is a Sugar Bowl made by Red Wing, but there really is no opening for a spoon… so maybe it is not a sugar bowl? I have not been able to find the dinnerline that it is from either, even with the book. I thought I may have seen a Larger Cookie Jar in the same design on EBay… so maybe this is part of a cannistor set perhaps? The piece is shaped like an Green Apple… although more turquoise in color. It stands about 3" to top of bowl and about 4" total. It is about 3" across in diameter too. Bottom is marker RED WING and there might be another mark that looks like a star perhaps…but could just be part of the mold too. If you could help identify this neat little bowl it would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!!
