I am hoping to learn a bit about the history, age and value of these 2 crocks, both in perfect condition, no cracks or chips.

Thanks! Lisa


Lisa, you have a Minnesota Stoneware Company 3 gallon double rib cage crock.   It was produced between 1883 to 1895 or so.   Unsigned and in perfect condition, the value is around $200-$250.

The 10 gallon Elephant Ear crock  was produced between 1895 & 1906.  In perfect condition the value is around $500.
