I have a one gallon large wing crock similar to one you commented on earlier in April. My crock however is slightly out of round at the lip…about 3/8 wider on one axis than the other. Would that affect the value? I also see some short brown lines inside that could? be cracks, but since they are only 1 or 2 inches long and don’t appear on the exterior, I’m tempted to think they are firing flaws? How about other production flaws like pops and ripples, are they a factor? Forgive me, I really know nothing about crocks and how to grade them. I’ve sold this one twice on ebay for $500, both times to people that never intended to pay. Just want to know a fair price and description.
Mike, your Red Wing 1 gallon crock with the 4 inch wing looks quite nice. From the photo, those short brown lines are from the potter when he was smoothing the clay. These do not affect the value. 3/8″ out of round will haved miminual price affect. Air pops depending on how large and where they are at can have an affect on price. Appearance, detail & darkness all affect value. From what I can see here, yours has a value between $400 & $425. Hope this is helpful. Al Kohlman
