Hello, I have three pieces that I believe were given to city employees in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Each have a Red Wing Stoneware Company stamp on the bottom and each are numbered out of 300 (presumably a limited run of 300 for each piece?). The handled jug piece has a slot for coins on the upper side and is stamped with the letters "RWS" on the bottom. I also have a tea-light candle holder piece with a separate flared glass cover that I believe was another limited city employee gift, likely from the same 2000-2005 era. I have not been able to find any information on these items. What do you suppose they are worth? Thank you for your time. Thanks, Aaron
