10 gallon Red Wing Water Cooler


Dear Sirs,

I have inherited the attached item, and I was wondering what information you have on it that you might share with me. Such as: when it was made, what it’s estimated worth is and so on.

I have contacted Red Wing and they told me to contact you with my inquiry. I am most curious, although I have little intention of selling it. 

Red Wing is quoting me a price to build a new lid for it, and I am also ordering a spigot from them, unless of course, there is a way to find such original pieces. 

Thank you for your time, and Merry Christmas! 


Your 10 gallon Red Wing Water cooler was produced between 1915 & 1930.  Without the lid and spigot, the value in perfect condition is between $450 & $550.  If you go to the Red Wing convention in July, you would be able to find the original “Central” spigots there.  They sell for around $50.  I would think you could find an original lid as well, but they would be a little more difficult to find.  Al Kohlman
