8 gallon salt glaze leaf crock, Minnesota Stoneware, back stamped


I have a 8 gallon salt glazed crock from my grandmother.  It has a minnesota split oval stamp and a small hairline crack on the back.  I’d like to learn about when it was made and value.  Pictures attached.

Thank you,  Sue


Sue, your Minnesota Stoneware Company 8 gal leaf crock was produced between 1883 & 1895.  It is a good piece, but the hairline crack hurts.  $800 to $1000.  Al Kohlman
