Bean Pot

Question:
Hello! It’s Sam the 10 year Old Red Wing Collector Again!!! I have a question about A Bean Pot I purchesed in Rochester, MN for a $1. It is a Red Wing Advertising Beanpot with advertising as follows: Banner Oil Company, SUPER-SEVICE STATION, 6TH and MAIN, BROOKINGS, – S. DAK. GOODYEAR TIRES. It is all in bright blue, the first and last lines a bit darker than the rest. It is in very good condition, with the original lid.There are some glaze bubles and glaze pops in the brown area, One very small and minor chip on the back (not facing the advertising)and some glaze skips near the sets of 3 impreneted lines on the bottom.There is a small chip on the lid. I bought it for a Dollar because there was a decal over the advertising and I couldn’t see it then. But when I got it to my Grandma’s house, I saw Blue under the decal. We got it off though,with no hurt to the Bean Pot. The lady who we got it from had got it when she and her husband bought a casino/resort in Northern MN, It was there. She liked the beanpot but hated the advertising. This was the bean pot that was in the Dec. 06 RWCS Newsletter under Deals and Finds. I have gotten a appraisal from the owner/operator of the Old Rooster Antique Mall in Rochester of $250-$300. Is it worth this? In the books I have looked at they say $125-$150. I really like your responce to my question about my jug. I would have never guessed! Have a nice day! Sam the 10 year old Red Wing Collector P.S. There was a antique dealer right ahead of us at the Rummage Sale!! The great deal he missed! =)

5 Gallon Shoulder Jug

Question:
I am a 10 year old Red Wing Collector. I have a question about an interesting piece of Red Wing I bought at an Auction in Kellog, MN. It is a normal Red Wing Potteries 5 gallon jug with small wing and oval, but the inside is Albany Slip, not the usual white!! Yes, It is a glaze, not dirt. (I checked) Have you seen any others like it? It is not worth much because it has a big chip, though. I would appreciate any other info. I really like your Q and A page. Thanks, Sam

Advertising Pitcher

Question:
We received this creamer from my husbands family who lived in Bemidji until the early 1950’s, and have always wondered if it was Red Wing. The creamer is 4 1/2" tall, 4" in diameter, and from spout to handle is 6 1/2" across. The piece is not marked, and reads "Compliments of Bemidji Co-Op Creamery Co. Bemidji Minn." Any help in identifying the maker would be greatly appreciated!
