5 gallon Red Wing Ball locking jar


I have enclosed a couple of pictures of a ball lock jar I have.  I think it’s more recent because of the small wing, but my question is about the mouth.  Did the small wing jars have a smaller mouth/lid than the large wing jars?  Mine measure 4 3/8” across the outside of the mouth.  Is there somewhere I can get a replacement lid?


Todd M.


Todd, your 5 gallon Red Wing Ball locking jar has about the right size opening.  With the potteries oval and small wing, your ball locking jar was produced between 1936 & 1947.  I do not know of a replacement lid, but with a little luck, you can find an original ball locking lid either on eBay, flea markets or of course the July Red Wing Convention in Red Wing, MN.  Have fun on the hunt!   Al Kohlman


10 gallon crock with the 6 inch wing, 5 gallon Red Wing crock with 4 inch wing

Question: Hello,

I was so excited to find your website and have enjoyed looking at the different crocks Red Wing has made. I have two, and was wondering if you could give me an estimate on their value. They do not have any cracks, but each one of them has a small chip on the rim. The larger crock has an insignia by the handle that says P A T E N T E with the date Dec. 24, 1915 or 1918. I have attached pictures.

Thank you for the information.



Linda, nice to hear you enjoy the site.  Your Red Wing 10 gallon crock with the 6 inch wing,  would have a value between $125 & $150.  The patent date is Dec 21st, 1915.  This is the date that Red Wing patented the handles.  Also, looking at the photo, one of the handles on the crock is not Red Wing.  It is the one where the wire makes an X in the middle.  Someone must have replaced the original handle with this one.  The 5 gallon Red Wing crock with 4 inch wing would have a value between $70 & $80.  Al Kohlman

6, 3, and 2 gallon Red Wing Crocks



I have 3 old crocks and was wondering what they might be worth.

6 Gal. / 3 Gal. / 1 Gal. There is a handle on the 6 gallon.

They are in good shape, no cracks or chips.

Thanks so much. Vicki,


Vicki on your 6 gallon Red Wing crock it looks like there is a hairline on the bottom front of your crock.  If this is the case, the value is around $40.  If it is a glaze run, then figure about $70 to $80.  Both the 3 gallon & 2 gallon winged crocks, $60 to $70 each.  Al Kohlman

Red Wing 7 inch sponge ware Cap bowl


I just got the attached spongeware bowl.It measures 7″ across and is ribbed. I am not positive that it is Red Wing, but I sure hope so. The only mark on the bottom is the 7c. It is clean with no chips.
First-Is it Red Wing and 2nd an approximate value?
Thanks for your time-Again!!

12 gallon Red Wing Birch leaf crock


Hello Al, Thank You for this great site!!! Wow this is really some neat items. I can see how you can get hooked on it!

I recently acquired the attached 12 gal. crock for 70.00 at an estate sale. It does not appear to have any cracks or crazing. It does have 1 small chip-hole that seems to be there from when it was fired. I am wondering how I did on this?

Also I am thinking of purchasing a 4 gal. Ice water crock as pictured and wondered what a fair value would be?

Thanks again in advance for your wonderful insights.



Tim, you did well on the 12 gallon Red Wing Birch leaf crock.  With just a minor air bubble pop, the value is around $150.  The 4 gallon Birch leaf Ice Water in perfect condition  $800 to $1000.  Al Kohlman

Cow & Calf figurine


I have a cow and calf figurine and would like to know the value. It is in perfect shape with no damage. It is light brown in color. There are no markings on the piece.  It was given to a red wing employee in 1911. A photo is attached.

Thanks for your help, Jim


Jim, I think you would have paid about $.90 for this Cow & Calf figurine back in 1911.  With the economy being down, these Cow & Calf figurines have went down in there value.  Still today, in perfect condition, $3000 to $4000.  Nice little gem you have there.    Al Kohlman

3 gallon Red Wing lazy 8 target churn


Can you tell me if this churn is a red wing and what’s its value would be.  It’s in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.



Tony, this is 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

Red Wing Water Cooler, spigot hole in back



I have what I think is a 4 gallon Red Wing Water Cooler, but it does not say Water Cooler and the spigot hole is on the back side.  It is in perfect condition and has a cobalt 4 on the inside.  So do you think its a water cooler that a mistake was made on or is it something else.  The lid came with it and I would like to know if its a Red Wing lid and what its for. Maybe your opinion on value too.

Thank you very much.



Craig, you have the early Red Wing Water Cooler.  Without the word Water Cooler, it could have been a special order is what I think.  The lid is not a Red Wing lid.  The correct lid would be a button water cooler lid which would have the same type of stripes on it with a molded form of daisy petals surrounding the button handle of the lid.  If your cooler has no damage, I would place the value between $400 & $550.   I realize this is quite a spread, however, your cooler is quite unique which could very well increase its value to the right collector.  Al Kohlman
