2 gallon birch leaf crock no oval

Question:

Hello Expert,

Is this a piece of from Union Stoneware?  If so, did they forget to put the stamp on it?

Thanks for your time.

Margaret

Answer:

Margaret, no the Red Wing Stoneware Company did not forget to stamp the oval on your 2 gallon birch leaf crock.  These crocks were commission for the Sears & Roebuck Stores.  Sears & Roebuck did not want ovals on there stoneware for whatever reason (some folks believe that Sears & Roebuck wanted to have their customers believe that they were the producers of this stoneware, but this is just hearsay).  Al Kohlman
