I would like to know the price I should ask for a Red Wing 5 gallon Jug that has one small chip at the opening of the jug. The chip is a triangluar one about 1 inch by one inch but only as deep as the glaze.
Richard, I viewed the chip on the spout of your five gallon jug, but did not see the jug itself. Therefore, I do not know if your jug is a beehive or shoulder jug? Whether it has a wing or leaves? If it has a wing, what size is it? All these variables would help determine a price. Now even without all these variables, let’s discuss the chip.
A chip of this size on the front of the jug, will greatly reduce the value of your piece. Unless it is extremely rare, most purest collectors would not be interested in the piece unless you almost gave it away and they could see a small profit in resale.
With all this being said, what you need to do is look at what you have invested in the piece and calculate what would be a fair profit for you and fair price for the buyer.
If you are not comfortable with this, please send me another photo of the entire front of the piece and I would be happy to try and give you a price range on your jug. AL Kohlman
