Monkey jug

Question:

Hello, again!

I have this gray, stoneware beehive jug (pictured), but I don’t know what is the “generic” name (or type of jug it’s commonly called).  It is 13.5″ high, including the handle.  It has no marks at all, so I don’t know who made it; if you have any idea, I’m willing to listen!  And, of course–any clues as to its value?

Thanks!

 

Answer:

I have not see this type of jug with two spouts.  With one spout, they call it a Monkey jug.  With this being said, I would still call it a Monkey jug even, with the two spouts.  As far as value goes.  With out advertising or a decoration, I would think $30 to $50 or so.  Al Kohlman

Albany slip beehives jug

Question:

I have a large round beehive jug and I am wondering if it is a red wing. I am assuming it is a 5 gal jug but there are no marks or numbers on it.  It is approx 19 inches tall. If it is red wing can you tell me what it is worth?

Sherri

 

Answer:

Sherri, normally there would be a number for the gallon-age  scratched into the tomb of the jug, however, this in not always the case.  I cannot see enough of the jug to say it is Red Wing or not, but lets just say it is.  These unmarked Albany slip beehives if they were in perfect condition, use to sell for around $200 when the economy was good.  Today you would be looking between $150 & $175.  Again for these values it must be perfect (free of any chips, flakes, cracks or hairlines.   Al Kohlman

4 gallon salt glaze lazy 8 target, side stamp

Question:

Al, I have a 4 gallon salt glaze lazy 8 target crock, no chips or cracks, there are couple of very small flea bite chips on one handle, and one on the other handle, what I think make it special it is back stamped, I have never seen a small gallon crock stamped, I have seen a couple in books, but never in the eight years I have been buying, and selling crocks, I mostly seen them in 12 gallons and higher, don’t think I’ve seen them even in the 10 gallon size, my question is, how rare is it to find the stamp in the small gallon, also does where the stamp is on the crock make it more valuable (front-side-back), I am attaching pics, thank you. (Woody)

 

Answer:

Woody, these small Red Wing Salt glazed side stamped crocks are around and can be about as hard to find stamped as the larger ones.   Also, having the crock front stamped verses back or side stamped does assist in increasing it’s value.  Your pieces as I see it is valued in the area of $800 or so.  Al Kohlman

Hi,
Can you tell me if this churn is a red wing and what’s its value would be.

Tony, the photo of your butter churn is quite small for me to be positive on it’s maker, but from what I can see, it does look like a Red Wing churn.  The lid is not Red Wing though.   An unsigned 3 gallon Red Wing lazy 8 target churn in perfect condition is between $300 & $350 without the lid.  Al Kohlman
