Wings on Crocks

I have collected the one gallon mcdonalds crocks. I have them from 1991-2001. Why did they stop making them with the wing on the front? Thanks and have a great day! Denise

Denise, McDonald crocks are an after market (reproduction) product produced by a local potter in the Red Wing area. Therefore, there is no history or information available as to why something was done to change the looks of a piece of stoneware they produce. Not being a collector of this type of stoneware, I have no information available to me as why the wings have been removed. Wish I could have been more helpful. Al Kohlman
