Hi Al, I’ve collected stoneware animals for ten years and have three Redwing bulldogs and one sitting bulldog that looks like my others. Do you know if Redwing had a sitting bulldog? Even his collar looks the same! If so what
value would you place on it and the classic ones? I also have the Ruckle’s
Bristol glaze pig in the Whitehall Illinois stoneware book, the same one
in the book by the markings. Have you ever seen this sitting bulldog?
Thanks for any information you can give, Angela
this is the first sitting bulldog that I have seen. It does look like the
Red Wing Bulldogs and I bet it is. That is quite a piece and would
love to know if any other collectors owns one. The value on that dog
would be scary at best.
Now the pigs being Red Wing on Monmouth? I can’t tell. Unless
they are signed, they look exactly the same. Both potteries must have
used the same molds Al Kohlman
I recently purchased these three crocks for my father-in-law at an estate sale because I know he collects Red Wing stoneware. Can you give me a rough estimate of origin/time period/value?
#1: Red Wing Crock #2 with lid
#2: Crock (Red Wing?)#9
#3: Red Wing Jug #5
Thanks for help
Ted, your first Red Wing crock is a 2 gallon with lid that
was produced between 1909 & 1930. Value on just the lid is between
$100 & $125, Crock $50 to $70.
The second crock is a Red Wing salt glazed crock called a
double P. It is a 2 gallon that was produced between 1867 &
1895 Value is between $125 & $135.
Last is a 5 gallon Red Wing shoulder jug. It was
produced between 1917 & 1930. Value is in the area of $75. All
values are for perfect pieces. Al Kohlman
This is a salt glaze crock. It has one small chip on the handle no cracks. We have owned it for about 50 years and bought it from a person we think bought it new. We would like to know the value and how to best sell it?
Chuck and Dixie
Chuck & Dixie, your Red Wing 20 gallon salt glazed leaf crock would have a value around $1000 not being signed. It could go for a little more or a little less but that is close ball park value with today’s economy. If your are Red Wing members, the best way to sell it would be in the Red Wing Auction in the July Convention. If you are not a member, you could join for $25. The second would be craigslist, with local pickup. You would not want to pay for shipping & insurance on this beast. Hope this helps. Al Kohlman
Good morning, can you give me any idea of the value of this 5 gallon cooler with stand and bowl? I have the opportunity to purchase it but am unsure of value. I could have to help you determine value. As you can see this comes with stand and catch basin. I am being told it came from a Reservation school house in South Dakota from the early 1900’s. Thank you! Ronda
Ronda, if your 5 gallon Red Wing water cooler, lid and fountain are in perfect shape, the value for the complete set including stand is between $800 & $1000. Al Kohlman
Recently my mother-in-law was wanting to get rid of some “crocks” that my father-in-law had bought but that they never used. I told her I’d take four of them. I thought she only had plain old crocks but these were made by Red Wing so I went on the internet and found your site. I was wondering if you can tell me what you think they may be worth. I received two 4 gal. crocks and 1-10 gal. and 1-12 gal. I am attaching some pictures I took of each and will give you some details I’ve noticed about them. The 12 gal. has a metal ring around the bottom, somewhat rusty and was wondering what this particular crock may have been used for. Following are some details of each crock:
4 gal. – in really good shape but has a chip around the side of the top rim;
4 gal – in really good shape but has a small chip in the rim as well
10 gal. – appears in good shape and seems to have one original handle but the other handle is some form of replacement;
12 gal. – appears in really good shape except for a small crack on the inside and rusty metal ring
Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. I was going to use the crocks as flower pots but now I don’t think I want to take the risk of them fading or getting damaged.
Renee, the two 4 gallon Red Wing crocks with the chips have a value in the area of $35 to $40. The 12 gallon Red Wing birch leaf crock with the crack in the back is in the $40 range. The 10 gallon Red Wing with the 6 inch wing in perfect condition even minus the handle is valued around $150. Al Kohlman
I’ve had this for special little piece for over twenty years and have decided to let it go to a new home. There is a wonderful story to go along with this item. It is in great condition. No cracks etc. Although it doesn’t have a bottom plate, it does have advertising. See picture below. What do you estimate the value to be and how should I go about finding a buyer? I live near Milwaukee, WI. Should I attempt to find a bottom plate?
your Red Wing advertising chicken feeder is wonderful. This is not an advertising that
I see much, so the value without the bottom plate is right around $450. The bottom plate for this size of Chicken feeder is around, so any collector interested in it should be able to find one. Al Kohlman
I have been trying to identify and find a value for this crock~ it was my gear uncles and I inherited from his estate.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Melissa, your great uncles has a Minnesota Stoneware Company 8 gallon Elephant ear crock. It was produced between 1895 & 1906. In perfect condition the value is between $275 & $300. Al Kohlman
Hello! We inherited this piece, and are looking for some information on it’s history and value. It is stamped Red Wing on the bottom of the crock. Thank you!
Katie & Jennifer
Katie & Jennifer, you have a Red Wing 2 gallon salt glazed double P bottom signed crock. I was produced sometime between 1867 & $1895. Value today is between $125 & $140. Al Kohlman
I have a 1 gallon redwing funnel top all white with a mall red wing on the side.
I cannot find it in any of the books I have and so I suspect that it is rare.
Do you have any idea of the value?
Dale, you do indeed have a rare one here. My guess Red Wing stamped this 1 gallon shoulder jug in the same time period they placed the red wing on the 1/2, 1 & 2 gallon brown top vinegar jugs in the 1930′s. However, this is the first all white zinc glazed 1 gallon shoulder jug with a small red wing that I have seen. With this being said, it is hard for me to place a value on it as I do not have another to compare it to. It could very well hit a $1000 or even a little higher to the right collector. The one gallon brown top shoulder jug with the same size red wing is valued today at $175, but yours being all white is much rarer. Again, this is a guess on my part with no other one ever being sold to compare it to. Hope this helps some. Al Kohlman
I was wondering how old this pottery is and where the date is found? Thanks Nancy
Nancy, the date of your 20 gallon Red Wing crock can be found through the history of production by ovals, size of the red wing, handles or no handles etc. Because your 20 gallon Red Wing crock does not have handles (handles were introduced in 1915) and the first red wing which was 6 inches long was placed on their pottery in 1909 and the oval which looks to be 2 7/8 inches wide, puts it right in that time period between 1909 & 1915.
