Omaha Bake Beans Advertising Bowl

Question:

Hey,  I just bought this at an estate sale for my wife as she has become quite the Red Wing collector. Mostly she has jugs and crocks and even a butter churn. But this is going to be her first bowl. Can you tell me anything of the value or any prominence?

Thank you!

Kevin.

Answer:

Kevin, This bowl in excellent condition could run $150-$250, but with the crack on back its value drops to $75-$125.

12 gallon narrow crock, is actually a stoneware milk can

Question: We are looking for the best way to appraise the value of this 12 gallon wing churn. 

Answer:

This narrow 12 gallon crock is actually a stoneware milk can. It would have had a metal ring with 2 handles on each side. Very few are left but demand isn’t that strong for this. A value is hard because demand can change. At this time a value of $1000-$1500 would be a good estimate in excellent condition.

5 gallon Red Wing Beehive Jug

Question:

Answer:

Pat, The damage brings down the value to around $150-$200. Without the oval brings down the value also. It’s a pretty jug.

5 gallon storage jar

Question:

Hello,

My name is Joni.  I am not a member of your Red Wing Collectors Society, but we have a unusual one of a kind piece of Union stoneware that we are trying to put a valve on.  Would you be able to recommend someone?  I do have pictures that I can send to any one that would like to see it.  Thank you for your time.

Joni

Answer:

Joni, I talked to a couple people about this churn. We think it was some type of prototype to churn butter. There are not any comparables so it is difficult to establish value. It’s very unique and you would need demand (collectors that would really want it) for the price to go higher like an auction.
