Can you tell from the photo’s when this jug was made? And maybe an approximate value for it? Thank You for any help you can offer!


Answer: From the photo of your jug, it is hard for me to say if it is a Western or Red Wing Stoneware Company jug. Both of these company produced these brown top vinegar jug in large quantities. What collectors look for is decorations or advertising. Your jug without any decoration or advertising would have a value in the area of $10 to $20. This is do to the large number of these jugs produced and quite easy to find. Al Kohlman
