Red Wing grey line “Cookies” casserole with lid

Question:

I am interested in selling a Red Wing grey line “Cookies” casserole with lid.  It is in excellent condition.  Is a $1200 asking price consistent with today’s values?  I also have several grey line casseroles with lids, bowls, a butter pail and few commemoratives for sale.  What are your recommendation regarding advertising them and shipping and handling?

My zip code is in Virginia.

Thanks,

Maureen

Answer:

Maureen  , The value on Sponge band  items have taken a hit with the economy.  a mint cookie jar may bring $500 nowadays .

If you need to sell them I would use eBay only because your being a long way from any other collectors.

If you can’t  ship you can take to a ship and pack business or even a eBay reseller and they do all the work . Cliff

Question:

Hi I was wondering if you could help out with this red wing crock I have. I was wanting to know the value of it. I’m not sure on the glaze, but it does have a chip out of it in the back. How ever it is not cracked anywhere else and the chip does not go clear through. The measurements on the crock is  Height is 10 1/2 inches and the Width is 10 inches. Any information would be great on this piece I really don’t know a whole lots on it.

Thank You

Kristen

 

Answer:

Kristen, Your 3 gallon crock with a black ski oval with birch leaves is a harder one to find. Even with the chip in back I would say still a $125 crock.

4 gallon Red Wing Churn with lid and dasher

Question:

I have this Red Wing 4 gallon butter churn and was wondering of the age and worth ?

It is in very good condition, no cracks or chips.

Thanks

Craig

Answer:

Craig, A nice looking and clean 4 gallon Red Wing churn complete with lid  can be around $300  Sharper the sheen of the glaze with a clear and dark wing, oval and number, then higher the value.  This has a big oval that dates it around 1912. I do see a line right in front that devalues your churn to around $150 with lid.
