Question: Hi my name is Dave I have a three gallon beehive jug that my wife and I bought at an auction sale last summer. I was wondering if you could give me some information on it? I think it is in good condition , a small chip on bottom front no other chips or cracks. I am fairly sure it is Red Wing .What is the value and age of this jug? I will attach pictures. Thank you for your help.
Answer: Dave, from what I can see of your Red Wing 3 gallon salt glazed beehive, it could very well be Red Wing. Not being signed and with the lazy 8 target mark, the value is around $300 to $350. These salt glazed jugs were produce between 1877 & 1895. Al Kohlman
