1 gallon Red Wing crock



Gee, I am sorry not to have taken a picture of my gallon crock, however, it is very plain and I will describe as much as I can.  It is a gallon crock with no lid.  Just one red wing.  The red wing is not smooth…it is rough, however, not swirly, just like it was applied half way through firing.  Does this make sense?  I hope so. No mark on the bottom or anywhere else.  I do think it is old from my husband’s side of the family.  Can you give me any info?  Thank you for considering my question.  Peggy


Peggy, your 1 gallon Red Wing crock sounds like a vintage piece of Red Wing and not a reproduction.  On some of the pieces the Red Wing was applied (by stamp) while the clay was quite wet.  When this happens, the stamp will leave a small impression which one could feel by sliding their fingers across the red wing.  What I don’t know is the size of the red wing.  If the red wing is 4 1/2 inches long (1909 to 1930)and in perfect condition the value can run from $350 to $450.  If the red wing is 2 7/8 inch long (1930 to 1947), then the value  (in perfect condition is around $200.  Hope this is what you are looking for.  Al Kohlman
