We have a Red Wing Potteries 5-gallon crock that my Grandmother gave us quite a few years ago. Just like her, we use it to make open crock barrel pickles. I am wondering if you can tell me anything more about this crock (approximately when it was made, etc.). It is in very good condidtion save for one of the metal handles broke off about 5 years ago. Keith
Answer: Keith, your grandmother’s 5 gallon Red Wing crock was produced between 1936 & 1947. In perfect condition it has value around $75. Al Kohlman
