5, 5, and 4 gallon salt glaze churns with decorations

Can you tell me if any of these churns are Red Wing ? Thanks Steve


Answer: Steve, the 5 & 4 gallon churns are not Red Wing. The 6 gallon churn could be Red Wing, but most likely is Western. With the ribs in the one side of the lazy 8, is most often seen on the Western pieces, but there have been some signed Red Wing pieces with this decoration as well. The other thing that leads me to believe it is not Red Wing is the slip tail coming off of the bottom of the number 6. Hope this helps some. Al Kohlman
