Red Wing 5 gallon koverwate


Hello,  my name is Maureen.  I’d like to downsize my many decades of collecting, including crocks.  I particularly like advertising and designs in blue.  I’d like to start with my koverwate.  It’s 10″ in diameter, a very blue 5 inside base, 5 holes in base, 2 on each side, and a very blue square on side, stamped koverwate with 6 following lines. No cracks or chips, 2 very light hairline lines(?) about 1 or 2″ long inside base, but very solid under base. Glaze is shiny, smooth, and the shade of all my stamped red wings.  It’s coloring is very nice.  I’d appreciate info on it’s value.

Thank you,  Maureen


Maureen, with the 2 very tight hairlines, your Red Wing 5 gallon koverwate would have a value right around $150.  Red Wing collectors love their koverwates, however, they want them mint and even though the hairlines are tight and only 1 to 2 inches long, they are just that hairlines.   I wish you well with your downsizing.  Al Kohlman
