3 gallon salt glaze beehive

I purchased the following behive jug and was wondering if you can tell me who made it and its approximate value. Some have said that it’s Red Wing, while others have told me that it’s Ohio Stoneware. There are no markings that identify who it was made by. Stephanie

Badger on a football

I have a small (3 inches by 2 and 1/2 inches at the base and about 2 and 3/4 inches in height) piece that is a badger standing behind a football with its front paws about half way up the ball and standing on it’s hind legs. It is brown in color and has a very shiny glaze. On the bottom, stamped into the pottery, is "R. W POTTERIES" around the top of the "hole". Under the "hole" it says "RED WING MINN". On each side of the "hole", looking at it so it can be read, is a "c" with a circle around it on the left and 1939 on the right of the "hole" separating the two "inscriptions". The base itself looks like the ball and the badger are on grass. The webbing on the ball is about three-quarters up and the ball itself is on its side and tilted slightly from left to right as you look at the piece from the front – that is with the badger behind the ball and looking up over the ball toward the sky. To me it is in great condition – looks like new but I make no claim to knowing anything about that! Thanks for any help!!! John

Answer: Hi John
