6 Red Wing Water Cooler

Question:
Hi. I have a Redwing water cooler and wonder what you can tell me about it? What it’s worth,etc. The size is 12" circumference, 15" height. It says 6 – Redwing Storeware Co., Redwing, Minn. It’s in excellent condition. Thanks.

 

Answer: Your 6 gallon Red Wing water cooler was manufactured between 1915 & 1930. Without the lid and in mint condition it would have a value between $300 & $400 in today’s market. Looks like the stenciling is fully complete. I don’ know if you have the spigot for this piece (it would help with the value). No spigot and the value would fall to the lower end. Nice piece.
