I have a set of 8 turquoise, apple shaped, Gypsy Trail bowls. They have Red Wing USA on the bottom and are 5 inches by 4 inches. Can you tell me approximate value and age? Jacquie

Answer: Red Wing produced numerous different fruit-shaped items as part of the Gypsy Trail Hostess Ware line. Your apple bowl was introduced in 1940 along with three sizes of bowls, casseroles, cookie jars, marmalade jars and marmites in the shapes of apples, pears and pineapples. These fruit-shaped items were made for several years then phased out. By 1944 all had been discontinued. A turquoise 5 inch apple bowl in excellent condition is worth $15-20.
