4 Gallon Water Cooler with Lid

My parents have a #4 water cooler setting in their basement. The oval is 2 1/4 across, no cracks, a small chip in the lid and it needs cleaning up. Can you tell me about how old it is and its value?

Answer: Your parents Red Wing water cooler was manufactured between 1930 & 1936. With prices being down at this time, a fair price would be $500 or over. Al Kohlman
