I have a very nice 5 gallon albany slip glaze jug. It is side wall stamped Red Wing Stoneware Company and is in excellent condition with no damage of any kind. I was hoping you could provide me with approximate manufacturing date and its current value.

Thanks, Ron


Ron, first of all, just an outstanding beehive with a gorgeous Albany slip.   Your Red Wing 5 gallon side stamp Albany slip beehive was produced between 1877 & 1895.    Production most likely some place in the middle of these dates.   In perfect condition, these jugs are going in the $1,200 range.  Al Kohlman
