WHAT'S  NEW

This web site would not be possible without the gracious people who have opened up their collections for us to photograph and enjoy. To everyone a heartfelt thank you for your generosity.

3/3/05 Added Duo-Tone brochures to the documentation section.

1/29/05 More price lists added. Also popped in Town & Country, Village Green, and Delta Blue. I'm sure I'm missing a few patterns here. In all over 80 new scans were added. That's all for now, folks!

1/28/05 Kermis and various price lists, display photos, and the like are in place.

1/22/05 Futura added.

1/18/05 The Casual, Concord, & Continental Buffet scans are in place.

1/17/05 Last year a gentleman was kind enough to let the Red Wing Museum copy a large stack of material he'd acquired from the estate of a salesman. The Museum in turn let me scan in the parts that pertain to dinnerware. Over the past several months I've got the scans tweaked for web format and now they're getting inserted into web pages.

The first of these photos have been posted in the Anniversary brochure section. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be processing the rest. There are far too many to list here, so check back periodically under your favorite pattern to see if there's anything new. The deadline for getting this all done is February 11 - just in time for the Mid Winter convention.

6/10/03 Cleaned up the pattern identification page because it was bugging me. Added a few more links and completed it with a Hearthstone Beige picture. Still trying to get the script to work so the supper set pictures cycle though. Coolness takes work.

6/9/03 Revamped the specials page. You can find lunch hour, test plates, and the like there. I'm still getting links, captions, and plates in there, so a lot more work needs to be done.

12/27/00    Dropped in a script to put up a random graphic every time a visitor logs onto the site.  I uploaded the Master Index too.  It's only half full, but maybe it will help someone find the name of their pattern.  Oh, and the Village Green line was uploaded a few weeks ago.

9/23/00    We just got back from a trip to the west coast for a wedding.  On the way back we dropped by Seattle to visit Wally and snap a few pictures of his extensive collection  --214 to be exact.  We could have easily stayed another week to take hundreds of more pictures.  Wally and his wife Jessie have an absolutely amazing collection of Red Wing dinnerware, art pottery, and odds and ends they've picked up through the years.

9/23/00    Thumbnails added for patterns and pieces.
