Pitcher with brown decoration

Question:
I found a small picther at a consignment store. It is 7 in high, and a bit over 3in wide. It is cream colored with brown and bone colored rings. The design in the center around is orange and brown "tulip like". I have identified the handle like some other red wings on line, but not the pattern. On the bottom is red wing- usa. This piece looks new. Can you tell me the name, date and ? the value. Thanx, judy

Question:
I was at an estate sale and purchased a Iris pitcher(large size). It looks like who ever had it painted it white as the paint is chipping and it is green under it. What colors did they come in?

Chef Pierre Cookie Jar

Question:
I have 3 chef cookie jars. A blue one and beige with the red wing stamp and a yellow one with the stamp and numbers. I read that there is a green one also. What would the collection go for if you had all four. I love them all. I grew up with the blue one as our cookie jar. All are in execellent condition. Thank you, Bonnie

Answer: A chef cookie jar in excellent condition would be worth around $75 to $100 in the yellow or tan colors, with another $25 or so for blue.  A green Chef Pierre cookie jar is worth $250-300. There are also rare fleck pink and fleck blue Chef jars made briefly in the mid-1950s. I’ve also seen white Chef jars but have not found documentation in company brochures.

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

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.
