I have been trying to find info out about this piece, but can’t find anything, or am not looking for the right thing. My dad had this and thought it was his grandma’s or great grandma’s. On the bottom is is stamped in blue Red Wing Saffron Ware. It stands about 7 1/4″ high. It is in excellent shape. There are no chips or cracks. It is a yellow/gold color with 3 cobalt blue stripes around the middle. I am assuming that it is pretty old.
Thank you for your time! Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Judy, you have a Red Wing Saffron cookie jar. I don’ know if it has a lid, but comes with one. The value is somewhat low. Maybe $40 to $50 or so with the lid. Al Kohlman
Can you please tell me the value of my Hazel Extra Creamery Butter Crock?
Carol, your signed Red Wing Hazel Extra Creamery Butter Crock if in perfect condition today has a value between $250 & $300. I do see a small chip in the back of the butter crock on the rim. So that value would be around $250 as collectors today are looking for perfect pieces. Al Kohlman
This is a Music Hall Bath House Co. Salt Sulphur Water, Excelsior Springs, Mo. 1 gallon jug. I was told by the producer of the red wing price guide that this size was not made, only 5 gallon, until he saw it. I can provide all history of where and when this jug was found. Any info and value would be appreciated. It is bottom marked Red Wing Stoneware Company.
Answer: This is a wonderful Red Wing advertising bail jug and bottom signed to boot. In perfect condition, $700 to $800 on the hard to find advertising. Al Kohlman

I have enclosed a couple of pictures of a ball lock jar I have. I think it’s more recent because of the small wing, but my question is about the mouth. Did the small wing jars have a smaller mouth/lid than the large wing jars? Mine measure 4 3/8” across the outside of the mouth. Is there somewhere I can get a replacement lid?
Todd, your 5 gallon Red Wing Ball locking jar has about the right size opening. With the potteries oval and small wing, your ball locking jar was produced between 1936 & 1947. I do not know of a replacement lid, but with a little luck, you can find an original ball locking lid either on eBay, flea markets or of course the July Red Wing Convention in Red Wing, MN. Have fun on the hunt! Al Kohlman
I was so excited to find your website and have enjoyed looking at the different crocks Red Wing has made. I have two, and was wondering if you could give me an estimate on their value. They do not have any cracks, but each one of them has a small chip on the rim. The larger crock has an insignia by the handle that says P A T E N T E with the date Dec. 24, 1915 or 1918. I have attached pictures.
Thank you for the information.
Linda, nice to hear you enjoy the site. Your Red Wing 10 gallon crock with the 6 inch wing, would have a value between $125 & $150. The patent date is Dec 21st, 1915. This is the date that Red Wing patented the handles. Also, looking at the photo, one of the handles on the crock is not Red Wing. It is the one where the wire makes an X in the middle. Someone must have replaced the original handle with this one. The 5 gallon Red Wing crock with 4 inch wing would have a value between $70 & $80. Al Kohlman
I have 3 old crocks and was wondering what they might be worth.
6 Gal. / 3 Gal. / 1 Gal. There is a handle on the 6 gallon.
They are in good shape, no cracks or chips.
Thanks so much. Vicki,
Vicki on your 6 gallon Red Wing crock it looks like there is a hairline on the bottom front of your crock. If this is the case, the value is around $40. If it is a glaze run, then figure about $70 to $80. Both the 3 gallon & 2 gallon winged crocks, $60 to $70 each. Al Kohlman
Hi I have a few pieces that I was curious about the value. 6 gallon has some staining but otherwise perfect. Churns are in great condition. Thanks Brad
Answer: Brad, your Red Wing 6 gallon leaf crock has a value between $500 & $600 depending on how bad the stain. The 4 gal Birch leaf churn, $150 to $160. Red Wing 2 gal salt glaze target churn, $800 to $1000. Al Kohlman
I just got the attached spongeware bowl.It measures 7″ across and is ribbed. I am not positive that it is Red Wing, but I sure hope so. The only mark on the bottom is the 7c. It is clean with no chips.
First-Is it Red Wing and 2nd an approximate value?
Thanks for your time-Again!!
Answer: Tim, you have a Red Wing 7 inch sponge ware Cap bowl. Value on your bowl is $50 to $60. Al Kohlman
Hello Al, Thank You for this great site!!! Wow this is really some neat items. I can see how you can get hooked on it!
I recently acquired the attached 12 gal. crock for 70.00 at an estate sale. It does not appear to have any cracks or crazing. It does have 1 small chip-hole that seems to be there from when it was fired. I am wondering how I did on this?
Also I am thinking of purchasing a 4 gal. Ice water crock as pictured and wondered what a fair value would be?
Thanks again in advance for your wonderful insights.
Tim, you did well on the 12 gallon Red Wing Birch leaf crock. With just a minor air bubble pop, the value is around $150. The 4 gallon Birch leaf Ice Water in perfect condition $800 to $1000. Al Kohlman
