20 Gallon Salt Glaze Butterfly, front stamped

Question:

I have this crock, I am going to have to downsize my house and need to find a place that I can sell it. I live in Arizona and don’t know how to go about it. Can you give me some advice, on how or where I could sell it. It is in very nice condition, no hairlines or cracks, but does have one chip on one ear, and on smaller one on the other ear (which is almost hidden because it is on the underside of the ear.

Thank you so much for your help.

Nellie

Answer:

Nellie, you have a nice butterfly here.  The tough part is selling it in Arizona as there are not many Red Wing collectors in that area.  You really don’t want to ship it as it is large and quite heavy,so shipping charges will be quite high.  The best is to first try Craigslist and make sure that you state PICK UP.   If you have no luck there, you can try eBay, but again state PICK UP.   Every now and then, some one will state they want you to ship it.  If that happens let them know that you will take it to a UPS Store and they will package, insure and ship it at the their expense.   Good luck.  Al Kohlman

Difference is between 2 elephant ears on a crock and 4 elephant ears

Question:

Hi,

I am hoping that you can help me out. I am wondering what the difference is between 2 elephant ears on a crock and 4 elephant ears on a crock is? Is one more valuable then the other?  If you can help me out I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Grant

Answer:

Grant, yes 4 elephant ears would be more valuable than 2 as collectors always love to see more decoration than less. However, condition, how well the decorations are printed and great glazing would also affect the value.   I would take a elephant ear crock with just 2 leaves over 4 if the two leaf crock had a super applied stamp which showed all the leaf detail over a 4 leaf with some of the leaf detailing missing (do you kind of get my drift).  If all things being equal, then a 4 leaf 15 gallon elephant ear crock would bring $50 to maybe $75 more than a 2 leaf.  Hope this helps.  Al Kohlman
