30 gallon Red Wing salt glazed back stamped Butterfly crock


I would like some information and valuation of this 30 gallon crock. It is in excellent condition with no hairline cracks and it is stamped Red Wing on the back.
Thanks, Bret


Bret, your Red Wing salt glazed 30 gallon back stamped Butterfly crock was produced between 1880 & 1895.  If there are no chips, cracks, hairlines or cracks the value today is between $4500 & $5500.   I hate to have such a large spread on the value, however, until one gets to really look at the piece for flaws like flaking in the glaze, stains or spider type hairlines, this is the safest way to go.  It is a great looking piece!  Al Kohlman
