Good Afternoon:  I’m just beginning research on this piece. We found it yesterday in our parents home as we work through it for closing the estate.  Is it work anymore research – we can’t find much about it?  I can get you more details I you’d need them.



Carma, you have a 3 gallon Elephant Ear beehive jug which was produced by the Minnesota Stoneware Company between 1906 & 1909.  All cleaned up and if in absolutely perfect condition & I mean perfect, no chips, cracks, hairlines etc, the value is between $3000 & $3500.  Any damage & the value will drop to half what I posted.  Nice hard to find piece.  Al Kohlman
