I would like to have some information (history) on these 2 pots. One is a #3 & the other is a #10. the #10 says Patented 12/21/11 and is Unionware. I’m sending you a picture of the #3 pot, as your system will only allow me to. The Stamp on this pot says "Red Wing Potteries Inc, RedWing, Minnesota". If you would like to see a picture of #10, please let me know. Thank you for your time. Ariele


Answer: Ariele, your 3 gallon Red Wing crock was produced between 1930 & 1947. In mint condition it would have a value in the area of $50 to $75. Your 10 gallon crock should have a patent date of Dec 21st, 1915. This patent date refers to the wire handles and when Red Wing began applying them. With this patent date we know that your 10 gallon crock was produced sometime after 1915 and before 1947. Your 10 gallon crock would have a value between $150 & $200 if in mint condition. Any damage to either of your crocks would reduce their value. Al Kohlman
