This seems to be a salt glaze pot, about 7 ” tall x 7 1/2″ diameter at the bottom, and the bottom is marked Red Wing Stoneware Co. I need help to determine whether this is genuine and if so how old it is.

Thank you


Your Red Wing bean pot is the oldest version of their bean pot line.  It is kind of a Boston bean pot version and is show in the 1884 catalog in the Albany slip line.  Yours is zinc glaze which began right in the 1894-95 era,  It is an original Red Wing bean pot.  Al Kohlman
