Butter Crock (4 inch)

Question: {mosimage}
Hello, I have come across a very small beater jar that measures 4 inches tall and a diameter of 3 and 1/2 inches. It is marked M.S.Co. Red Wing Minn. on the bottom. It has the concave bottom on the inside. I have been unable to find this jar in any of the Red Wing reference books. Can you please tell me if this is a common piece or more on the rare side? I am going to try to send a picture for you to see. Any information would certainly be helpful. Thank you so much for your time and effort. Sincerely, T.C.

Answer:
T.C. thanks for the photo as this helps me better understand your question. The photo looks like the Minnesota White High butter crocks. The 1 quart size is the most difficult to find and are valued around $100. The concave bottom however does sound like an early beater jar, but I have never heard or seen a bottom marked beater jar such as yours. You may indeed have an odd ball, but either way, I would place the value at $100 do to no decorations and the concave bottom being the only factor that would or might separate it from a white high signed butter crock.
