First and foremost, thank you for this service. I have reviewed your site extensively and can not find the info on the particular Red Wing crock I have. I checked the ovals.pdf and mine is not listed. My crock has no cracks and includes the lid. It has what I believe to be the 4.5 inch Red Wing is 21″ tall and a diameter of 17″. In addition it has wire and wood handles on the crock and lid . However the Oval says ” Red Wing Potteries Inc.” I am attaching that picture as I could not find it on your site.
Thank you very much.
Answer: Terry’s 20 gallon Red Wing crock was produced between 1936 & 1947. The potteries oval was the latest oval used by the Red Wing Stoneware Company. Do to the large side of the 20 gallon crock, Red Wing used the 4 1/2″ wing on most of these larger crocks from this era. Value on the 20 gallon crock is around $200. If the lid is perfect, it’s vale is around $200 as well. al
