Red Wing Shape 666

Question:
I found three pieces of Redwing in the house I bought in the attic. One piece has the number "666";, weird but when and how much is this piece worth. Sue

Answer: Hi Sue

there are two different shapes for the Devil’s number. the first is an eyeglass shape, part of the doric line from 1960. value around 35.00 or so. the second is a fluted shape, with round balls on the feet, part of the neoclassic line, circa 1930′s, value around 60.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

Question:
We have inherited a 5 gallon Red Wing crock with lid. They are in very good condition. I see no chips on the crock itself. The lid has two small chips on the bottom. This crock, and others were used by my grandmother-in-law for pickling. We are interested in selling it. Would you give us an approximate value to help us with pricing it? Janelle

Water cooler stand

Question:
Attached is a "water cooler" I believe, that I recently acquired at a family auction. I’d like to know it’s age and value, as well as anything more you can offer. If it was manufactured with a lid, that is gone. The only marking is on the bottom Red Wing Union Stoneware Co Red Wing Minn. It seems to be in great condition, though it leaks around the spigot (washer is dried)and the inside the bottom is water mineral residue. I would hesitate to try cleaning that until I know more. I greatly appreciate any history you can provide. Thank you! Kathy

Answer: Hi Kathy

we have one with a partial paper label, it held Radium water. the glaze would make it from around 1930, a brushed ware glaze, usually used on art pottery. fairly uncommon item, there are a few around, value around 250.00. thanks, steve n rose

Brushed ware pot with flower decorations

Question:
Hi – I recently found a pair of these. Someone suggested RW Brushware, and I found this site after the Red Wing book in my local library was no help. If so, is the motif roses? Each is 5" tall, 5.5" in diameter at the rim, and 3.5" in diameter at the base. I’ve attached a photo of the front. Here are direct links to photos of the inside and bottom, which I’ve posted to my Photobucket account: Front: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1924.jpg Inside: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1925.jpg Bottom: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/100_1926.jpg Thanks for sharing your expertise. If you need any more information or more pictures, please feel free to let me know. Chuck

Answer: Hi Chuck

I don’t think this is a Red Wing shape, there were a few other companies, western, RRP, they may be the maker. still nice shapes, thanks, steve n rose

15 gallon Union Stoneware Crock with double birch leaves

Question:
Al – Here’s another question on the 15 gallon Union Stoneware crock, with the ‘doubled’ twin birch leaves. I just saw one at an antique shop, in beautiful condition. There were no hairlines, chips, etc, and the coloring on the design, the ’15′, and oval and lettering was rich. What would you say that would be worth? Thanks. Chris
