I have inherited the attached item, and I was wondering what information you have on it that you might share with me. Such as: when it was made, what it’s estimated worth is and so on.
I have contacted Red Wing and they told me to contact you with my inquiry. I am most curious, although I have little intention of selling it.
Red Wing is quoting me a price to build a new lid for it, and I am also ordering a spigot from them, unless of course, there is a way to find such original pieces.
Thank you for your time, and Merry Christmas!
Your 10 gallon Red Wing Water cooler was produced between 1915 & 1930. Without the lid and spigot, the value in perfect condition is between $450 & $550. If you go to the Red Wing convention in July, you would be able to find the original “Central” spigots there. They sell for around $50. I would think you could find an original lid as well, but they would be a little more difficult to find. Al Kohlman

What would be the value of a 8 gallon transitional elephant ear crock be in good condition? It has the hand written 8, the stamped elephant ear leaves, no oval amd albany interior. Also, what about a 20 gallon elephant ear crock, 20 stamp, leaf stamp and oval?
Dru, an 8 gallon transitional elephant ear crock with no oval and Albany slip interior has a value between $500 & $700 in in perfect condition. If it had the oval the value would be higher. A 20 gallon elephant ear crock with a single set of ears and oval would have a value between $250 & $350 in perfect condition with excellent markings. Al Kohlman
Al, a 3 gallon churn very good condition. I noticed the leaves show ragged edges, in my price guides looked like Minnesota Stoneware but then what do I know. No lid. Sorry I keep finding these items that don’t match exactly to those in the guides. Also on the 5 gallon beehive, I have two 3 gallon beehives…. Same pricing as 5 gallon??? Both 3’s are in very good-excellent condition. Al thank you.
Chuck, your 3 gallon birch leaf churn is a Minnesota Stoneware Company piece. Red Wing did not put molded handles on their pieces. With the light decorations, no oval and not fully complete leaves, your 3 gallon churn in perfect condition has a value in the area of $130 to $140. On your 3 gallon beehives. In perfect condition $300 to $350. Al Kohlman
I have a stoneware water cooler app. 15 and one half inches tall. On the front is a large cursive numeral 6. Below that is written “ice water” in block printing. Under that is an oval with “union stoneware red wing minnesota”. Further down are two birch leaves and at the bottom is a hole for a spigot. The cooler seems to be without cracks or chips. Would you please give me an app. value and refer me to a picture of the correct lid and spigot? Thank you for your attention. Michael
Michael, you have a 6 gallon Minnesota Stoneware Company Ice Water. In perfect condition with excellent markings, the value is between $800 & $1000. If you go to the Red Wing Collectors Society’s and look under “stoneware”. There should be photos of Red Wing lids. Your Ice Water would take a 5 gallon Red Wing white button crock lid. This would be the correct lid for this piece. The spigot would be the central push button spigot. You would need the older spigot and not one of the newer ones. Al Kohlman

I just acquired this crock and was hoping for some more information about it. I called Redwing today and the lady I spoke to said it was made between 1877 and 1906. I was wondering if the hole in the center is original or not. And it’s possible value.
Thank you or your time
Betty, your Red Wing 15 gallon Birch leaf crock with the chips under the handle and hole (which is not original….it has been drilled) has a value around $75 to $100. That hole is what hurts the value. Other than that it is a nice looking crock. Al Kohlman
I am searching information on my Red wing Stoneware collection.
I have attached photos – I didn’t take great photos and not too detailed but as a quick look could you give me an idea of how I would go about selling these.
Do you think I should sell them as a set or individually. I can provide better photos if you think you may have time to look at them.
Just after a quick guess-stimate on the value so I can put them on ebay.
Many thanks in advance
Stella, if you sell your Red Wing Stoneware, you will want to sell them individually. Also, when selling on eBay, if you sell them as buy it now and use my prices, you just won’t sell them. You need to start them low to get collectors excited. Just some advice, and you may want to put a reserve on them if you are afraid they will go to low. Times are tough right now and money is tight.
25 gal $250 to $300
10 & 12 $150 each
5 $80 to $100
2, 3, 4, $60 to $80 each
3, 4, & 5 Shoulder jugs $50 to $75 each
These values are for perfect pieces. Good luck. Hope you do better than my values. Al Kohlman
I’d very much like to have it valued and would appreciate your passing on the info. to your Stoneware expert. I can tell you that the crock has been kept indoors as a container for sports equipment for the last 40 years or so. It is super clean – no handles, and to my untrained eye, no evident crazing or significant cracks (I think there is a hairline/one somewhere?). Nancy
Nancy, your 30 gallon Red Wing crock with 6 inch wing would have a value between $250 & $275 in there is no hairlines, cracks or chips. It would have been $300 except the bolt that holds the handles is rusted inside the clay handle holders. If there is a hairline, the value will drop to half. Hope this helps Al Kohlman
