2 gallon circle Red Wing Stamp


Hi – I purchased this red wing crock this week-end in Minnesota and am very curious about it.  I have never seen a crock with a round circle versus an oval on the front of it.  Inside the circle it says Red Wing Union on the top, in the middle is Stoneware Co. and across the bottom is Red Wing, Minn.  Please let me know if this is a rarity or common to some year and a value you might think it is worth.  There is a hairline crack on the side and a small chip of the very bottom edge of it in the back – so it is not mint, but very displayable and holds water.  My name is Beth


Beth, your Red Wing crock was produced between 1930 & 1947.  With the circle rather than the oval, this crock is much harder to find.  However, with the hairline, the value just keeps your piece below even that of the crocks with easier to find ovals.  Collector (especially today) want perfect.   Value, $30 to $35.   Al Kohlman
