Collection of stoneware crocks and bean pots

Question:

My 53 year old wife remembers her grandmother making pickles in the 8 & 30 gal Red Wing crocks (in the attached pictures) as a young child.  There doesn’t appear to be any chips or cracks in any of the pieces and the handles also appear in good shape.  We are almost sure that the 2 gal crock with the brown glaze interior is a Red Wing and we believe that the small crocks with covers and the (1-2 quarts) tri-side jug with screw top may also be from Red Wing.  Would you please let us know if these are also Red Wings?  We would also appreciate any comments concerning the pieces and an estimated values. 

Thank you,

Gregg & Amy

Answer:

First of all, all of your pieces look to be Red Wing.  Now, estimate values

Unsigned Red Wing bean pot  $20
30 gallon Red Wing crock with 6 inch wing, mint $300
Red Wing Albany slip foot warmer, unsigned. $50 to $75
8 gallon Red Wing crock with 4 1/2 inch wing $125 to $150
2 gallon Red wing crock, $50 to $70
Red Wing salt glaze double P crock $125 

Hope this is what you were looking for.  Al Kohlman

Red Wing Gray-line casserole

Question: Hello and Good Evening,
 
I’m just now learning about this beautiful pottery and seeing all the pieces people write to you about.  So I need your expert opinion if you don’t mind……..
 
I bought this beautiful piece at a garage sale sitting by it’s lonesome for $2.00.  All other items the lady was selling were Christmas items way overpriced.  I saw this crock and loved it……..I asked her “How much please?” and her response was “$3.00” So obviously I got her down to $2.00
 
The item is in MINT condition…….Clean with no chips or cracks.  I don’t think it’s ever been used.
 
Would you be able to put a value on this for me?  Would be greatly appreciated…..Hoping I found a treasure…….
 
Thank you and make today a good day!

4 gallon lazy 8 salt glazed churn

Question:

We recently purchased a 4 gallon salt glaze churn with what we thought might be a “lazy 8” and were wondering if it is Red Wing, and if so – the approximate value.  I’ve attached 5 pictures showing the detail.  Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated!Thank you,

Jon

Answer:

Jon, your 4 gallon lazy 8 salt glazed churn is Red Wing.  Because the decoration is quite common, it does not carry the value of the leaves or rib cages, but still a nice piece.  In perfect condition the value is $250 to $300.  Al Kohlman
