Red Wing Sponge Mini Jug



 I have a miniature blue and white sponged stoneware jug that I think may be Red Wing,but is not signed,so thought you could help. It has an applied handle that looks like RW,and one of my RW collector books show this jug,but only in larger sizes of 1/4 and 1/2 pints.(The cork was obviously added.) Pictures are attached to e-mail,and this measures 2 and 5/8″ high,about 6 and 1/2″ around,base is 2″ across.It holds exactly 1/4 cup,or 1/8 pint.I know that RW did make other minis in this size,so am wondering if I have an extremely rare or hard to find mini,or if this is an imposter? Thanks for any help you may give me. Cindy

Answer:  this sponged mini is Red Wing.  They have been found in 1/8, 1/4 & 1 pint size.  They say that they have never been found signed, however, I have seen an 1/8 pint signed.  Valve in perfect is $2500 to $3000.  Nice piece, haven’t seen one for awhile.  al
