Streamlined water jug, Gypsy Trail Hostess Ware line


I got this can you tell me what it is and how old it is.


Your pitcher is a Streamlined water jug. In 1940 Red Wing introduced several items under the name “Streamlined” as part of the company’s rapidly expanding Gypsy Trail Hostess Ware line. Each piece in the Streamlined group had a design on each side that consisted of three raised ovals of decreasing size on top of each other. The items were a 64 oz water jug, covered ice box jug, 8″ and 9″ covered casseroles, and 2 cup and 5 cup covered teapots. The water jug had an over-the-top handle and was the only Streamlined item that did not have a cover. By June 1942 the water pitcher was the only remaining Streamlined item in the catalog and by 1944 it too had been discontinued. In later years the pitcher as listed as “Modern” rather than Streamlined. This pitcher was available several colors including yellow, blue, turquoise, orange, pink, green and cream ivory. Value for a turquoise Streamlined pitcher in excellent condition is around $50 if it is in excellent condition.
