3 Gallon Red Wing Crock

Question:
My son has a 3 gal. crock with a Red Wing on it and the oval at the bottom with the Red Wing info. in it, in perfect condition. He recently moved and the movers broke it. They are willing to pay him for it. Could you give me a figure as to how much it may be worth? The above is all that I know about it. He received it from his grandmother so it is quite old. Thank you.

Stoneware Collection

Question:
Hi, I have several questions about some pieces of my late mother-in-law’s that my husband has decided, now that it’s been several years, he no longer wants. Since I’m the more web-savvy one, I’m doing the research and such, and I could use all the help I can get because I know nothing about pottery. So you have my thanks in advance for any knowledge you can share. The first question is how I should describe the 5 gallon jug so Red Wing collectors know exactly what it is, as well as how much I might expect for it. Is that a small wing? The second question is kind of general. Can you identify any of the other pieces, and, if so, what are they? I’m hoping the ones with the blue crowns are recognizable, at least. I’ve stuck them all into one image. I hope that’s okay. Pattie
