2 gallon salt glaze Lazy 8 Target unsigned/unmarked and 6 gallon Leaf salt glaze unsigned/unmarked. Can you tell the maker and when were they made? thank-you. Harold
Answer: Harold, I cannot see the decorations on your two crocks and therefore cannot truly say who the manufacturer was. The 6 gallon leaf was mostly made by the Minnesota Stoneware Company unless the leaf is hollow and pointed upwards. Then it would most likely be a North Star piece. If I could see the decorations, I could better help you out. Red Wing salt glaze production ran from 1877 till 1895, so it is a good bet that your pieces were produced in this time frame. Al Kohlman
