Book Values

Question:
Hi, can you tell me a book with current values and guides for red wing and also maybe Pfaltzgraff? Thanks for your time!

Answer: For stoneware, there are two, by Depasquale, Peck, and Peterson. An identification and price guide. Art Pottery’s best is done by Reiss, two volumes, with pics and prices. I’m sure Pfaltzgraff has a book, perhaps amazon or the local antique mall may carry that. thanks, steve n rose

2 gallon salt glaze

Question:
Hello, I am trying to determine if this crock is Red Wing. I recently acquired it from a friend and she has no idea. It does not have any of the typical Red Wing markings that I am accustomed to. However, a coworker saw it and said he thinks it is Red Wing. The crock is dark brown on the inside and has tan/orange flecks on the outside. It is in excellent condition. It does have an indentation on the side that appears to me intentional. It also has a nub/bump on the back that also appears to be intentional. I have pictures of all 4 sides, but I am only able to attach one via this website. Please let me know if you would like me to email the rest of the pictures. Thanks for your help Jill

stoneware pitcher and fruit jar

Question:
Al, I’m looking forward to your answer to my questions about a 3 gal. butter churn that I sent last nite. Anyway, I was wondering if you could also help me out with two other items I have. One is a pitcher (milk ewer?). This pitcher is 12" tall and it does have a small chip on the rim. There are no identifying marks on this pitcher so I was wondering if it was possibly Red Wing and what its approximate value is. Also, I know this is not your area of expertise but I have this Macomb stoneware 1 gal. jar (identification on bottom) with a screw top, and I haven’t been able to find anything else exactly like it. Your best guess on a price would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bruce
