This seems to be a salt glaze pot, about 7 ” tall x 7 1/2″ diameter at the bottom, and the bottom is marked Red Wing Stoneware Co. I need help to determine whether this is genuine and if so how old it is.
Your Red Wing bean pot is the oldest version of their bean pot line. It is kind of a Boston bean pot version and is show in the 1884 catalog in the Albany slip line. Yours is zinc glaze which began right in the 1894-95 era, It is an original Red Wing bean pot. Al Kohlman
I am attaching the following photos of a Red Wing Crock I found. I wanted to know if you could give me any more information about it (age, value, what it was used for, etc.).
It is marked:

Bottom marked with Redwing Stoneware Co.
It is approximately 5″ tall and 7″ in diameter. It has a glaze drip on the outside that’s the color of the inside brown.
Thank you for any information you may be able to provide,

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).
