8 gallon, 6 inch wing, ski oval crock

Question: I was interested in getting an estimated production year and value on this 8 gallon crock.  No chips or cracks, but a light 4” diameter crow’s feet hairline on the inside bottom and a 2” hairline on the outside bottom edge around the right side.  Both hairlines are faint and I believe only to be in the glazing.

The top diameter is slightly out of round as well.  Not sure if that would impact the value much.  





Nice looking 8 gallon Red Wing with a six inch wing.  Production was between 1909 and before 1915. Value with the crows feet hairlines $150 to $175.  al

Red Wing Sponge Mini Jug



 I have a miniature blue and white sponged stoneware jug that I think may be Red Wing,but is not signed,so thought you could help. It has an applied handle that looks like RW,and one of my RW collector books show this jug,but only in larger sizes of 1/4 and 1/2 pints.(The cork was obviously added.) Pictures are attached to e-mail,and this measures 2 and 5/8″ high,about 6 and 1/2″ around,base is 2″ across.It holds exactly 1/4 cup,or 1/8 pint.I know that RW did make other minis in this size,so am wondering if I have an extremely rare or hard to find mini,or if this is an imposter? Thanks for any help you may give me. Cindy

Answer:  this sponged mini is Red Wing.  They have been found in 1/8, 1/4 & 1 pint size.  They say that they have never been found signed, however, I have seen an 1/8 pint signed.  Valve in perfect is $2500 to $3000.  Nice piece, haven’t seen one for awhile.  al

2 gallon salt glaze Single P and a 3 gallon churn


Someone is selling these are Red Wing RARE target and beehive stoneware and I wanted to buy them but am unsure of the value and authenticity of them as being Red Wing. No where on the crocks do they have the “red wing” or marked as Red Wing.  Can you tell me the value of these pieces?





Answer: the first crock is a 2 gallon Red Wing Single P salt glazed crock.  Est vale in perfect condition today is $125.  The other piece is a 3 gallon salt glaze butter churn.  The shape & glaze looks Red Wing, but the decoration does not look to be Red Wing.  I guess I would really need to see it first.  From the photo, I would not purchase it.  Even if it were Red Wing, with that decoration, top price (if in perfect condition would be $275.  al

5 gallon birch leaf, and 5 gallon salt glaze with burn mark


Dear Sirs ;

Enclosed please find pictures of 2 Red wing glazed pottery jugs . The first one Has what appears to be an elm leaf emblem & is in good shape except for a small chip on the mouth of the jug  .It also has an insignia that says Union Stoneware Red Wing Minn

The second one has a curious marking which looks like a bee , but has no identifying insignia . It also has what appears to have a stain  on the “bee” .

Can you give me an estimate of their value.

Thanks ,



the first jug is a Minnesota Stoneware Company Birch Leaf  beehive.  It was produced between 1895 & 1906.  With the chip in the spout, the value is around $200.

The second 5 gallon salt glaze beehive with the lazy 8 target mark is not Red Wing.  Also, the mark by the decoration is not a stain, but a kiln burn (jug was to close to a hot point in the kiln when fired).  Sorry, I do not know a value for this jug..  al

4 gallon Birch Leaf Churn

Question: Hi and Thank You! for this service!
I have a Red Wing butter churn and am wondering the value of it.  Will attach pictures so that you can have better idea of what I have. There are two chips on lid.  The paddle looks too ‘rough/unfinished’ to me to be the original.  A small area on bottom looks spider-like
tiny cracking–will try to get pix to include.  NO cracking inside. Thank you so much for your help. This has the 4 toward top (blue); double birch leaf (blue); the oval red wing stamp.  NO Red Wing stamped on it and I wonder if this makes mine older OR newer? 


Red Wing sponged saffron bowl, 5 inch



 I have two bowls that I believe are Redwing, and I would absolutely love it if you could tell me more about them! They are both similar looking, but one is larger with the number 6 on the bottom, the other smaller with the number 5.

 These bowls are yellowish in color with blue and rusty brown sponging. Number 6 is 6 3/4 inches wide at the top, 2 1/2 inches wide on the bottom and 3 1/2 inches tall. Number 5 is correspondingly smaller. The interior glaze on both is crackley and some is worn off. Number 5 has some discoloration on the bottom interior of the bowl. Each bowl has a 1/4 inch surface chip on the rim.

 I will be so grateful to hear back from you! 

 Thank you!


Answer: Tammie, Your piece is a Red Wing sponged saffron bowl. The number is the size in inches across the top. Sometimes they are marked Red Wing or not. With no advertising from a business they are worth $50 to $70 mint. These spongeware bowls were produced in the  1920’s & 30’s.
