Hello. I am wondering about the value of this 20 gal upside oval crock. It has a 6 inch wing. One small chip out of the handle, small 1 inch crack above the base on the outside. The markings are pretty strong. Thank you.
Answer: Jeb, Your upside down oval is unusual but they are out there. A 20 like this mint would be a $200 crock add $100 for a upside down oval. A line takes the value down $150-$200. Cliff
Attached you will find a picture of a crock that we have had floating around for a rather long time …. It is my hope that you may be able to tell me if it is an antique or not … if not, my husband wants to use it as a planter.
The dimensions are 15-3/4″ outside by 17″ high. It appears to be about 20 gallon and I cannot find any stamp on it either side or bottom … the picture is all that I have to go on. I am not even sure that it is a Red Wing or not.
Thank you for any information you may be able to provide.
Marlene, you have a North Star Stoneware Company 10 gallon primitive butterfly crock that was produced in Red Wing, MN. The North Star Company when out of business somewhere around 1893 due to a depression. It is a very desirable crock among the Red Wing collectors and if in perfect condition, can fetch anywhere between $800 & $1000. So tell your husband to go find another planter!!!!!! Al Kohlman
If this is Red Wing, can you tell me an approximate age and value?
Value of a 5 gallon North Star Company leaf churn in mint condition is between $350 & $400.
Hi, I just purchased this nice butter churn from a flea market in Pinetop Arizona. There are no chips or cracks that I can notice.
The man thought it was pretty old, and I just really loved it. I looked up the design on the pottery , and found that it was made in
Minnesota, but I thought all Redwing pottery at the “redwing” logo on it. Could you please date this piece for me, and tell me what
it is worth. Thank You
Answer: Vuctoria, your Red Wing birch leaf butter churn was produced between 1895 & 1909. If both the churn and lid are in perfect condition the value is between $150 & $200. Al Kohlman
Hi, could you let me know if this is a Red Wing crock? And, if so, a value range given it is not in mint condition. There is some chipping of paint and a chip in the stoneware on the bottom edge.
Karla, you do indeed have a Red Wing 5 gallon salt glazed leaf crock. The chipping on the bottom edge is very minor as well as the pitting in the Albany slip on the inside of the crock. Value is in the $300 to $325 range. Nice piece! Al Kohlman
Question: What is the value of a 20 gallon Red wing koverwate?

Hi, William – Your jug is definitely RW and tends to bring around $250-$300 down here in the states. Sometimes I’ve seen them priced for more when dealers/collectors put them out for sale, but I rarely see them sell for any more than that. They might bring more up in your area…you’d know better that I on that.
Here’s a pic of my King’s Old Country cooler and jug. These are both 5 gallon pieces, however. I don’t know what the 2 gallon jug was designed to sit on top of, as I’ve only seen coolers in the 5 gallon size. They’re pretty rare.
My daughter bought this on an on line auction. She has asked me to try to find out some info about it. We would appreciate anything you could tell us. Dick & Jeanne. Thank You.
Answer: Dick & Jeanne, your daughter has purchased a Red Wing Stoneware 3 gallon zinc glazed beehive jug. This jug was produced between 1895 & 1917. With only the number 3 stenciled on the jug, the value is in the area of $150 to $175 or so. If it had further decorations such as leaves or a red wing, the value would be in the $300 range. Hope this helps some. Al Kohlman
