25 gallon large wing crock with handles

Question:
Hi Al, Can you give me an approximate year of production and value on this crock. It has a 6” wing. As for damage, it’s got a small chip on the front bottom edge (visible in picture) and two chips about the same size on the back bottom edge. It’s got a tiny chip on one of the molded handles where the wire enters the hole. On the inside bottom it’s got two very, very faint spider hairlines about 3 inches in diameter. Didn’t even notice them until I did a close inspection with a flashlight. Thanks, Chris

Red Wing “Lion Vase” Lamp shape 164

Question:
It was suggested to me that this might be a Redwing lamp. There seems to be a 3 digit number on the bottom maybe 850 or 860. It looks like a lion stalking through grasses. It is a yellow crackle type glaze with a white body. Any help with ID would be appreciated. Thanks!! Ann Marie

 

Answer: Hi Ann Marie

it is a red wing lamp, this is shape 164 in vase form. there are two sizes, one around 7", and the other 10" we call it the "lion" vase. sometimes the lamp numbers aren’t the same as a vase number. early shape, from around 1930 or so. Value is around 160.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

Minnesota Stoneware Co bottom marked – emailed for more info

Question:
I have several crocks that say MINNESOTA STONEWARE CO. on the bottom in raised letters in circle form with the word "REDWING" on the inside of the lettered circle. One crock is 5" high with a diameter of about 7 1/4". It is the same light tan color inside and out with no other decoration and looks like it might, at one time, have had a cover of some sort. Another crock has the same lettering on the bottom but with dots between each word on the outside circle. It is 6 1/2" high with a diameter of 5 7/8". Same light tan color inside and out. Both crocks have a raised double rim/lip. The third crock has a slightly darker tan exterior and a brown, glossy interior. It is 8 1/4" high with a diameter of about 8" and a single rim/lip. The lettering on the bottom is the same as the first crock described. Lee
