Stag deer lobby jar with cooler features

Question:
I have a 10 gallon Red wing water cooler in mint condition (no cracks or damages of any kind). It is approximately 100 years old. Has the original wooden top on it and most likely the original dispenser. It is a "salt-glazed" cooler with yellowish/tan color and a stag deer with a doe near it formed into the pottery. Also has trees formed in too. I know it’s very rare, but I don’t know the value of it. I’ve tried to research it, but can’t find one similar. Can you help? Have you seen one like this and what’s the approx. value? Thank you. Peggy

 

Answer: Hi Peggy

red wing did do the "deer" sandjar, it was done in the early 30′s. I’m pretty sure the water cooler version of it was done by robinson Rainsbottom, out of Ohio. I think it had a stoneware lid, not wood. These usually sell for around 300.00 or so. thanks steve n rose

Tan color bowl wih color splotches

Question:
This question is in regards to a stoneware piece I bought for a dollar at an auction in southwestern Pennsylvania. I don’t know much about stoneware so I’ll describe it to the best of my ability. It is a greyish-tan color bowl(looks like natural stone) with a clear glaze over it. It also has splotches of colored glaze on it which is raised up slightly higher than the body of the bowl. It has a small lip that goes around the top. It is about 4" tall by 6" across. On the base there is a small indented 1/2" square mark that is off centered. In the indented square is what looks to me like either a small face wearing a mask or a Chinese symbol. The marking is VERY hard to make out. I would like to know more about this piece. I have been researching it non-stop and cant find anything about it! Thank you! Kathleen

 

Answer: Hi Kathleen

I’m not familiar with this type of pottery, wish we could be of more help. thanks, steve n rose
