Red WIng 1199 vase

Question:
I have a white vase that was handed down from my father. He said it was a wedding present from my uncle. It is about 61 years old. It is white with 12 stripes on top going up and down, and the lower half is stars in four rows. The bottom is #1199 red wing underlined and usa under that. Inside the vase is a vintage green. Can you help? Thank you Pam from Portland Oregon

Answer: Hi Pam

your vase was designed in 1943, it could have been made for a few years after that. Kind of a patriotic feel about the form, from WWII. Value is around 55.00. thanks, steve n rose

30 gallon Red Wing Crock

Question:
I have a 30 gallon red wing crock that we had in our old farm house. When we moved I took it with me but we really don’t use it so it just sits in our garage. The width is 20 3/4" and it’s 20 1/2" tall and in great condition. The red wing is under the 30# and below the red wing is an oval with the word Union Co., Minnesota. No date is on this crock which I find odd because your web site shows dates stamped on the crocks. I believe this was used as a salt container in the old farm house which was over 100 years old back in 1975. Can you tell me how much this may be worth? Just a ball park. If you need a picture, I can try and submit one but thought I’d just ask. Thank you for your time. Pat O.
