20 gallon Red Wing crock



            I have inherited redwing crock. I was wondering if you could help me understand what it is, was used for, and a approx value.  It is dirty and I don’t see any cracks.  I have not tried to lift it to see the bottom yet. Theresa


Your 20 gallon Red Wing crock was produced between 1909 & 1915.  It has the block 20 & 6 inch Red Wing (which is the largest of the red wings produced.  It was used for canning.   Value in perfect condition is $200.  Very nice piece.  Al Kohlman
