I’m hoping you might be able to provide some information on this red wing crock. The crock has a raised red wing stamp on the bottom and I cannot locate any information on a piece with this marking.

It measures 10 1/2 inches tall and 10 3/4 inches across. It has some some small chips along the bottom along with a hairline crack along the lower bottom edge. I’ve attached a picture of this damage.

I’m not a red wing collector but I am curious about the raised signature. I just liked the mellow brown glaze that blends well with my other collections. Thank you. Alicia



Alicia, Your 3 gallon crock was made in Red Wing Minnesota around 1880’s. You can find different designs with this bottom mark. A mint crock will have a value around $150 in mint condition with a crack depends on where it is down the $30-$50.
