I have a 2 gal salt glazed crock that was my grandmothers, I’m sure it is from the red wing era.
Would like to find out what the design is on it, i think it is called a crazy 8 or something like it.
Could you help with the authenticity and some kind of value on it.
Pete, you have a 3 gallon salt glazed crock with a Lazy 8 target design. Value on these if in perfect condition is $125 to $140. Al Kohlman
I am wondering if this is Red Wing? If it is the value of it. Does have a hair line crack and chips on the lid. Three pictures are attached. Thanks. Beth
Beth, it is a Fort Dodge piece which was produced by Red Wing. With the hairline and chips on the lid, the value would be around $75 to $100. Al Kohlman
I have this unusual piece of pottery, one with a black oval, and one that has the wing and oval inverted. Attached are photo. What can you tell me about it. Jim
Jim, the first 2 gallon Red Wing crock is call the reverse oval. Value on these in perfect condition is $75 to $90. The other 2 gallon crock with large oval & in black ink has a value about the same as the reverse oval. $75 to $90. You just need to find that 2 gallon collector who is missing these pieces.

Dear RedWing Collectors,
I would greatly appreciate if you could help me out as to the
antiqueness of my 15gl crock. If you could help me with an estimate
of the value of my crock and lid as well.
Both the crock and lid seem to be in very good condition.
Enclosed are 4 pictures of my crock and lid.
Thank you for your time.
Answer: Josie, your Red Wing 15 gal crock in perfect condition has a value between $100 & $125. The lid is not Red Wing and therefore I have no information on its value. Al Kohlman
My wife and I where on a treasure hunt around 25 years ago when we found this in a basement crawl space. We have seen many with basic glaze and Red Wing markings but have not found one like this. It measures 8 1/2 inches tall and has a 10 inch diameter. I believe I had read years back that Red Wing experimented with green enamel. It does not have any markings on it. Could you please let us know if this is Red Wing and what the value if it would be?
Thank you for the help.

Yes, the Christmas tree holder was made by the Red Wing Stoneware company.
It was made around 1930. I have seen some of these with the Red Wing art pottery ink stamp. I would place the value between $250-300. Add $50 if it were ink stamped.
I recently purchased an amazing 6 gallon salt glaze redwing. I have never come across one is such flawless condition and am curious about its value. There are no chips, cracks, or othe issues. I have quite a few Redwings in my collection but this is my new favorite.
Thanks in advance,
Kelly, you have the . It is a very nice piece and not to easy to find. In perfect condition $400 to $500. Al Kohlman
Hello, I have a mini Red Wing advertising canteen which I have pictured. What is its age and value? Thank you, Courtney
Courtney, your mini canteen sure looks like Red Wing from your photos. These canteens were most likely produced between 1900 & 1906 or so. In perfect condition, the value is in the area of $1200 to $1700 give or take a couple of hundred. Al Kohlman
I have a 3 gallon cooler complete with lid and blubber. Very similar to what Kristi inquired about in September. Can you give me an estimate of value? It is in very good condition. Is the blubber chrome plated brass? It is not magnetic. Any help you could provide would be most appreciated. I can send pics if you need them.
All the best,
Reed, the 3 gallon Red Wing water cooler with lid and bubbler has a value in the area of $600. The bubber is nickel coated brass. This is why it is not magnitic. I don’t see any wear on the bubbler and all looks to be in great shape. Al Kohlman
1.This one is a jug in pretty good condition

My parents have a huge red ring crock collection. Im cleaning out there house because they became a little bit hoardery in recent years. And my mom moved away to the west coast.
They have a huge redwing crock collection. And I’m just wondering the value of a selected few.
I also have some really big ones. And some lids. But these are the ones I that interested me in value.
Elizabeth, the first photo of the Red Wing Potters Excursion jug is the big dog. Extremely hard to find. Value in mint condition $7,000 to $8,500 or so. The 5 gallon butter churn with large wing and lid. $200 to $250. The 3 gallon salt glazed crock with single P decoration with rim chips, $120 to $130. The small wing Red Wing Potteries water cooler in perfect condition. Around $300. 2 gallon Red Wing crock $60, 4 gallon Red Wing crock with small wing $60 to $70 & 10 gallon 4 inch winged crock $100 or so. Hope this was helpful. Al Kohlman
I’ve had this Red Wing Beehive 5 Gal Jug for a few years now. I was told when I had bought it that it was in Frank McCormick’s private collection until he passed, and then remained in his family until I acquired it. I was able to find one of his signatures on a Gophers baseball card that had been authenticated, and it matches the signature that is on the tag on the jug. It appears to be in perfect condition, no cracks or chips anywhere, it appears to be in new / mint condition. There is no makers mark either on the front or bottom. As I understand it was produced between 1895 and 1917? I’m trying to figure a value on the piece, my best estimate is between $300 and $500, but I am wondering if the provenance of it being owned by Frank McCormick adds any value??
About Frank McCormick
Nick, the value on this 5 gallon Red Wing beehive jug is between $300 & $350. It would have a higher value if it had an oval.. As far as Frank McCormick’s goes, a collector would not pay a higher value just for the fact it was in his collection. If he had signed the piece before it was glazed, then that would be a different story. Plus you would have to have everything authenticated, which it is not. Hope this helps. Al Kohlman
