Q: When my mother died, I was left the figural chef cookie jar she received as a wedding present in 1941. The chef’s outfit is dark yellow, and his hair and shoes are brown. The jar’s bottom is stamped “Red Wing Pottery, Hand Painted.” I need some history and an estimate of its value.

A: Your “Pierre the Chef” cookie jar was one of the most popular ever made by Red Wing Potteries of Red Wing, Minn. It was first made in 1941 and remained in production until about 1956. It was also made in light green and light blue. We have seen your jar selling online for $155.
