4 gallon salt glazed crock,

Question

I hope you can give me some information on the maker and time of these two crocks. Thank You In Advance, Ron

Answer

Ron the 4 gallon salt glazed crock on the right is a Red Wing drop 8 with quotations.  It was produced between 1877 & 1895.  Value is between $200 & $250 if in perfect condition.  The 4 galloon salt glazed crock on the left would be called a lazy 8 target.  It is not Red Wing.  Not being Red Wing, I just have no idea of value or history.

5 gallon Red Wing crock and 8 gallon Red Wing butter churn

Question

My parents both recently passed away, and these two crocks were in their house. My parents are originally from Minneapolis/Duluth and my grandparents owned a grocery store in Minneapolis back in the 40s-50s. I assume these came from the store. I know the pics aren’t great, and I can go back to their house to take better ones (and also of the bottoms if that helps), but I’d like to know more. I’d like to know an idea of their value, thanks Anita

 

Answer

Anita, the 5 gallon Red Wing crock has a value between $70 & $80 if in perfect condition.  The 8 gallon Red Wing butter churn has a value today between $700 & $800.  You might want to try Craigslist to sell your pieces. Best of luck on your sales. Al Kohlman

Reid, Murdoch & Co. pickle dispenser and Grommes and Ulrich advertising jug

Question

Greetings,

I have two pieces I believe to be Red Wing Stoneware.  Pictures are attached.

The first is a white bailed advertiser jug stamped Grommes and Ulrich Chicago. It also reads “1 GAL LIQUID MEASURE” on bottom face front.  It has a hairline along the base and the original bail is well rusted with damage to the wooden handle.  Otherwise is in great condition.

The second is what I was told is a pickle dispenser with advertising for Reid, Murdoch & Co.  It has a 2 very small chips and no cracks or other damage.  The glass appears to be original with 2 small chips.

Can you confirm that these are Red Wing pieces, give me any background you may have, and advise what you feel their value may be?

Thanks and best regards,

Ted

Answer

Ted,Both the Grommes and Ulrich Chicago. It also reads “1 GAL LIQUID MEASURE & pickle dispenser with advertising for Reid, Murdoch & Co are Red Wing pieces.  The Grommes & Ulrich with the crack has a value between $50 & $60,  The Reid & Murdoch Pickle dispenser $300 to $350. Al Kohlman

5 pound Red Wing saffron ware butter pail

Question

I recently acquired this and am unable to find any other than 3 pound. Is this a rare size? Terrence

Answer

Terrence, I wouldn’t call a 5 pound Red Wing saffron ware butter pail a rare size.  These butter pails used the same mold as the gray line ware.  They are always kind of a tough fine, but not rare.   $400 to $500 with lid and in perfect condition.  Al Kohlman

1 gallon Red Wing crock with the 4 1/2″ wing and lid with wing stamp

Question

Hi I am Ed and I thought you could help identify, date and possibly give me some idea what the crock is worth. My wife and I purchased our home. Along with the house came a lot of junk and this curious crock with lid. The crock is plain with the only markings of a 4 1/2 inch red wing center mass of the crock. Measuring approximately 7 3/4 inches high and 7 3/4 inch wide diameter. The crock is near perfect other then a 1/2 inch by 1/4 inch not very deep chip on the bottom edge. The lid is perfect with no damage other then old looking. In the center of the lid is a button handle with a number 1. Radiating out from the center is a multi-pedal design circling to a non glazed circle then to the glazed edge. The lid also has a 2 inch red wing and a little yellowing color compared to the crock itself. Was this lid made for this crock originally? Thank you for any information.

Answer

Ed, you have a couple of nice pieces here.  The 1 gallon Red Wing crock with the 4  1/2″ wing with small chip on the bottom is valued right around $400.  The lid is much rarer than the crock because of the small red wing on it.  The red wing on the lid is not very well stamped so it will hurt the value somewhat.  $600 to $650.  Also, that lid was made to fit any Red Wing 1 gallon crock and not necessary yours.  Hope this was helpful.  Al Kohlman
