6 gallon Red Wing Butter Churn


I recently aquired a 6 gallon Red Wing butter churn with 6 inch wing without a lid. I am having a difficult time placing a date or value on this item. There is not a single hairline or chip on it, but it has a chalky lime-like streaks outside and inside. Any thoughts on proper restoration will be much appreciated along with an estimated date and value. Thank you so much. (picture attached) -Josh


Josh, you have a 6 gallon Red Wing Butter Churn.  It was produced between 1912 & 1915.   If you clean it up and remove the lime (Lime-a-way toilet bowl cleaner in the gel form works best) the value would be in the $350 to $400 range.   Al Kohlman
