Wondering if you can tell me the years and values of these two Red Wing pieces. 1st is a 10 gallon crock with 2 small chips one by one of the handle holes and a small chip on the back bottom edge, both chips being about the size of a dime. Second is an 8 gallon ice water cooler in very nice shape one small chip on the top rim smaller than a dime and only really missing the white coloring, there is some sort of what looks like latex paint on it that I haven’t tried to remove yet. The coloring of the #8 and lettering is black on this piece not blue. Also can you tell me where to buy replacement handles for the crock and what type of spout would have been in the ice water cooler and if it is available as a replacement item.
Doug, your 10 gallon large wing crock was produced right around 1915 as it has the handles and the six inch wing. Value would be right around $150. You can find handles on eBay or at the Red Wing Convention in Red Wing MN in July. Your 8 gallon Ice Water was produced between 1909 & 1912. Value today is between $1000 & $1400 or so once you clean it up. The paint can be easily removed with any paint stripper without harming the cooler. The best spigot for your Ice Water is the old T-handle brass spigot. However, they look good with the original Central Spigot with the outside push button. A good place to find spigots is also during the Red Wing Convention in July or Larry’s Jugs. Love your cooler! Al Kohlman
