30 gallon double birch leave, union oval

Question:
We have unearthed some family heirloom crocks and are wondering the approximate value and history of them. The first is a 30 gal Crock with a Union Oval on it. They need to be cleaned up yet, but see no cracks, chips, etc. on the same. Thanks for your help!

 

Answer: Very nice looking 30 gallon Red Wing crock and it has the ski oval and block 30. Nicely balanced and very clearly marked. Value in mint condition for your piece would be $400 to $475 depending on how it cleans up. Super piece! One of the nicer ones I have seen for a while. Al Kohlman
