2 gallon Red Wing Potteries straight walled cooler

Question:

I recently got this 2 gallon Red Wing Potteries straight walled cooler and was just wondering its value.

It came without a spigot – the hole in the crock is glazed. The hole angles upward as it goes back into the crock, so the Central spigot with its ½” piping looks very strange on it – it points downwards at a bit of an angle. I found a 3/8” piped spigot and put it in instead so that it at least looks decent.

Thanks for your time,

Randy

Answer:

Randy, Your 2 gallon cooler is worth about $150.

20 gallon North Star primitive butterfly crock, Red Wing

Question:

We are in the process of going thru my mom and dad’s items. We have a crock that I would like to know their worth.

The crock says 20 and has design on it. Also in good condition-no cracks; the only blemish is it looks like something sticky must have gotten on the crock by the 20. I didn’t want to start scraping it, for fear it would do more damage.

If you have more information and what they are worth, I would appreciate knowing. Thank you.

Christine

Answer:

Christine, You have a 20 gallon North Star primitive  butterfly crock made in Red Wing MN. In mint condition $1500

8 gallon double Rib Cage, Red Wing

Question:

Good Morning,

My husband and I recently came across this 8 gallon salt glaze crock and are hoping you can provide us with some basic information on it (identification of the piece, the time period it was produced, the rarity/desirability of the item and a range of possible value).  I have included photos which show there are two cracks on the back.  I high-lighted the two cracks with tape so the size is more visible.  The cracks are on the outside and inside of the crock.

Thank you,

Jessica

Answer:

Jessica, This is a 8 gallon very desirable ribcage crock made in the 1880’s. A very well marked one could bring as much as $3000. With the lines in back still could bring $1200.

6 gallon salt glaze “sqatty” leaf crock

Question: First, thank you for offering this wonderful resource! 

My father was an avid collector of Red Wing crocks, jugs and mixing bowls. Most pieces my sister and I have been able to identify and price.  The six and eight gallon crocks are probably Red Wing, but the four gallon crock has a very simple decoration we’ve not been able to find elsewhere. All three appear to be in good condition. What are your thoughts about the age and value of these?

Thanks for help!
Tim

Answer:

Tim, Your 4 and 8 gallon crocks are not Red Wing but your 6 gallon is and I think it’s a squatty. If it’s under 13 inches tall a squatty worth about $400 if over 14 inches it’s a regular size crock worth about $300 in mint condition. Thanks Cliff

11” sponge band or Gray Line Red Wing bowl

Question:

Hello,

I recently purchased this bowl and was wondering if you could verify that it is a Red wing, approximate date of manufacture and the value.  It measures 11” across the top, I can find no flaws other then the red mark on the inside (looks like paint from the sponge band).  Maybe a small amount of crazing.  The mark on the bottom is a blue circle with the words: “Made in Red Wing”

Thank you

Rory

Answer:

Rory, You have a 11” sponge band or also called Gray Line Red Wing bowl from the 1930’s. In mint condition a value about $200. Cliff

5 gal. Double rib cage churn

Question: I have a 5 gal. Double rib cage churn. It has a crack up by handle. Is there any way to reinforce the crack and not hurt the value any? Also how much does the crack effect the value? Ramola

Answer:

Ramola, Your churn in mint condition would be around $650. With all the cracks I would be hard to get $200 for it. I would use Elmer’s glue work the glue into the cracks, take a large metal hose clamp and squeeze it till the crack is tight. You can also have a repair guy glue it for you.
