I found this 8 gallon salt glaze in a basement after cleaning it up I noted the sidewall stamp for Minnesota Stoneware Co, Redwing, Minn. There is a small flake/chip to the inner rim but no other damage, cracks, hairlines etc. Both handles are unchipped and in general one of the cleaner crocks I have found. The design is crisp with two birch leaves.
Can you give me an idea of age and value and or is this enough information. The side wall stamp is on the back or reverse from the front design. I included a group picutres with anohter bee singe 8 gallon and abee sting 12 gallon for size. I have the two birch leaf turned in one picutre to show the reverse side wall stamp.
Jim, your 8 gallon double leaf salt glazed back stamped Minnesota Stoneware crock is just a gorgeous piece. It was produced sometime between 1883 & 1895. Because of the double leaves, large size of leaves and extremely well executed, the value would be somewhere between $2000 & $2300. Just a killer piece. Al Kohlman
