Red Wing 5 gallon rib cage decorated salt glazed butter churn


Hello! Saw your website and I’m looking for some expert advice. We have these two crocks that were our grandparents’ and possibly their parents’. We were wondering if you could tell us more about them. The churn is in excellent condition with a couple chips out of the bottom. It still has its lid which is in great condition.

The crock is in somewhat rough condition with a Crack down one whole side.

We were just curious if you could tell us more about them. Year they were from and possible value. Any information is appreciated. We plan to keep them in the family and would just like to know more.

Thank you for all your help!

Jon and Courtney


John & Courtney, your Red Wing 5 gallon rib cage decorated salt glazed butter churn was produced by the Minnesota Stoneware Company between 1883 & 1895.  It would have a value between $350 & $450.  However, the lid on your churn is not Red Wing and have no value on it or history on it.  Also, the 3 gallon salt glazed crock is not Red Wing either and again no history or value on it.  Hope this was somewhat helpful.  Al Kohlman
