Red Wing Preserve Jar and Grommes and Ullrich Jugs

Question: Hello everyone,

I recently acquired some stoneware/crocks from my dads estate. I was hoping someone could give me some information about them, including value. I would also like to know how I go about selling them.
Felling overwhelmed. Thank you so  much,
Leah

Answer:

Leah, The pickle crock looks like a Red Wing preserve jar worth about $250, The Grommes and Ullrich 1 gallon jug about $125 and the 4 gallon jug about $300. Assuming in mint condition and far as selling you can post on the Red wing face book site, auction or craigslist works well.

Darien Hardware, T. C. Synder sponge bowl

Question:

Hello,

I saw a bowl on eBay with advertising stating “Compliments of Darien Hardware, T. C. Synder, 1940, Darien, Wis.”  The bowl was listed as a Red Wing piece and sold for $81.  The seller stated that although unmarked, it was obviously a Red Wing bowl.  I am not so sure, but would like your opinion.  It is about the same size as a cap bowl, but has no markings and is a slightly different shape than Red Wing cap bowls.  I took some photos from my computer monitor and have attached them.  They aren’t the best photos, but they illustrate the bowl well enough to see that it is not a cap bowl.  Can you help me with the identification of this bowl?  Thanks for your help.

Rod

Answer:

This is a Red Wing bowl. They come in Blue, White, White with blue bands, Albany and sponged . The book doesn’t state a name but I have called them Cactus bowl.

3 gallon bottom marked target salt glaze crock

Question:

Hello,

I’m hoping you might be able to provide some information on this red wing crock. The crock has a raised red wing stamp on the bottom and I cannot locate any information on a piece with this marking.

It measures 10 1/2 inches tall and 10 3/4 inches across. It has some some small chips along the bottom along with a hairline crack along the lower bottom edge. I’ve attached a picture of this damage.

I’m not a red wing collector but I am curious about the raised signature. I just liked the mellow brown glaze that blends well with my other collections. Thank you. Alicia

Alicia

Answer:

Alicia, Your 3 gallon crock was made in Red Wing Minnesota around 1880’s. You can find different designs with this bottom mark. A mint crock will have a value around $150 in mint condition with a crack depends on where it is down the $30-$50.

6 gallon advertising churn

Question:

Hi,

I'm helping my father do some research on a 6 gallon Red Wing butter churn. He is considering selling and would like to know the value, if possible. It has a crack near the top (picture included) and my understanding is there was a hole in the bottom of the churn that was repaired at one point (not sure how big it was, including a picture of the bottom of the churn). Also, it looks like there might be a crack over the advertising but the glaze still feels smooth so I'm not sure if it's a crack or some other defect. The lid is not shown but we do have it and is believed to be the original. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. Any info you can provide would really be appreciated. 

Thank you,
Amanda

Answer:

Amanda, This is a nice 6 gallon advertising churn! With a crack and repaired hole it still has a  value around $1200.

6 gallon Birch Leaf Ice Water

Question:

Hello!
We don’t find a lot of Redwing up here in BC Canada, but I have seen some beautiful pieces when we travel in the US. I was surprised to find this piece at my local thrift store the other day... sadly no lid.

From reading some of your website I see it has the “Union” oval and the birch leaves. I would be interested in knowing when these ice water crocks were produced and a value if possible! It is in pretty darn good shape - a small chip or two at the back on the base.

I appreciate any information you can supply.

many thanks
Eva

Answer:

Eva, Your 6 gallon Birch Leaf Ice Water was manufactured by the Minnesota Stoneware Company in Red Wing Minnesota sometime between 1895 & 1906. In mint condition it has a value between $700-$800. Chips on the backside base, still $600-$700.

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.
