Cornacopia vases 1098

I have 2 matching red wing cornacopia vases #1098. They are teal on the outside and pink inside with purple leaves running up the side. I cant find them anywhere on the web or at auctions. However, can locate many of the same in ivory. Are these rare or valuable? Thank you Tina

Answer: Hi Tina

Most were done in the antiqued ivory glaze, but in 1942, there was a group of handpainted glazes added. Not terribly rare, you do see them from time to time. Value for the pair is around 70.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose

10 gallon Red Wing Crock and 8 gallon with crown decoration

I have a 10 gallon Red Wing crock. It has the larger wing and the wire handles with wooden grips. One of the wooden grips is missing but wire handle is still there. No cracks but small chip in inside upper rim. Dated Dec. 21, 1915. I’m wondering about it’s value. I also just acquired an 8 gallon Crown crock in excellent condition. No cracks or chips. The interior is very dark. I’m not sure if it is blue, black, or purple. Can’t find any dates or markings other than the U.S.A. in the crown. Thank you Barb
