I picked these pieces up in Eastern Iowa. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sterling
Sterling, the Sterling Wine House jug is Red Wing. Value in perfect condition is between $150 & $175. It is a common advertising jug. The Advertising butter crock is not Red Wing. I think it is from Western Stoneware Co. I just have no idea of its value.
Found this jug in my attic over the weekend. It is obviously a red wing, but may you please tell me more about it.
I do not see any visible cracks or chips See picture attached.
Answer: DVR, you do indeed have a Red Wing 4 gallon Groomes & Ullrich Chicago advertising jug. In perfect condition the value is between $225 & $250. Al Kohlman
I went to your site in hopes to find out if this is Red Wing dinnerware. It is very
lovely, has the same flower as Orleans pattern, but different bowl trim. I would like to offer it for sale in my shop, but need to know when it was produced and value. Thank you Jan
The photo shows a covered casserole and covered cream soup in the early version of the Normandy pattern. It was one of four patterns in the Provincial shape introduced
in 1941. This early Normandy version was made for only about one year; it is not included with the other three patterns in a 1942 catalog. The early version of Ardennes was discontinued a few years later. Both patterns were revised and reintroduced in 1949. This more common version of Normandy with the prominent red apple was produced from 1949 to 1952.
Early Normandy is considered rare and quite valuable today. As with all dinnerware the
value depends on condition. In excellent condition, the cover casserole would be worth $75-100 and the covered cream soup $40-50. Crazing and stains are often found in Red Wing dinnerware made in the 1940s. Any damage including chips, nicks, cracks, stains, and hairlines will reduce the value considerably.
Recently I was able to buy this wonderful advertising crock. I was curious what you think the value is and if you had any idea how many were made and roughly when it was made? Thanks
Answer: your 2 gallon advertising crock would have a value between $1500 & $2000. I have no idea of when it was produced or how many were made. You can purchase the
Red Wing Pottery Ledger from the Foundation for around $30 and look all of this
information up. Al Kohlman
I have two crocks which I would like to have evaluated.
Photos attached. Thank you.
The double rib cage is in very good condition, while the Red
Wing has chips in the rim.
Answer: Virginia, the Red Wing 4 gal double rib cage was
produced between 1883 & 1895. Value $250 to $275. The 10 Gal wing crock in
its condition $100. It was produced between 1915 & 1930. Al Kohlman
Dear Red Wing,
Can you tell me if this seemingly is a Red Wing item and if so what year/is it collectable or common?
Sandra, your 3 gallon salt glazed crock with the primitive upturned leaf is Red Wing. It was produced by the North Star Stoneware Company between 1892 & 1906. If in perfect condition, it would have a value in the neighborhood of $300. Al Kohlman
What can you tell me about the value and history of the feeder.
There is a small chip at the base of this Red Wing bell chicken feeder and it will affect the value as collectors today want perfect pieces. The bell chicken feeders were produced in 1920’s. Value on this feeder is around $275 to $300. If mint value would be $325 to $350 without the base.
I was wondering if you could give me an idea of these three pieces:
The first is a 20 Gallon Butterfly Crock with a crack in the side. It appears a long time ago, someone stabilized this piece with a ring of bale wire around the top. It does have a couple of chips/flaws too. I have taken pictures from every angle. I would be happy to take more pictures if you like.
I also have a brown top jug and a crock.
Any help you can provide would be most appreciated!
Randy, your Red Wing 20 gallon salt glazed Butterfly was produced between 1887 & 1895. I just love the different tones of salt glaze on your piece. Not being signed and the large crack in the back, the value would be around $250 to $300 at best. The brown top jug may or may not be Red Wing. Either way, with no decoration or advertising, the value is around $10. The bottom signed butter crock does have a small chip on the bottom. Value is around $30. Hope this was helpful. Al Kohlman
WE ARE NOT WE ARE NOT REDWING COLLECTORS WE JUST PICKED THIS UP TODAY AT A FLEA MARKET BECAUSE WE THOUGHT IT WAS UNUSUAL THE TOP PIECE LOOKS LIKE A CUP WITH NO HANDLE AND THE UNDERPLATE IS ATTACHED NO POUR SPOT DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE ORIGINAL FUNCTION WAS
This item is from the Gypsy Trail dinnerware line and was produced in the early 1940s. The catalog called this item a marmalade jar. Yours is in the shape of an apple but is missing the cover. I’ve attached a photo of a an apple marmalade jar with cover.
Red Wing made marmalade jars in a variety of styles, shapes and colors. The shapes include apple, pear and pineapple. Colors include yellow, turquoise, blue, orange, pink, and light green. Marmalade jars were available with an attached stand (under plate) like yours or with no stand. Red Wing also made a stand-alone stand could be purchased to go with jars without an attached stand.
Hello- have a Red Wing stoneware bird bath that I am curious about. Cannot find it in any Red Wing books or copies of catalogs. Any idea as to value. June
Answer: June you kind of have a mishmash of parts, the top is a birdbath bowl, the bottom is a pedestal for an urn, a completely different item. they date to around
1930. the broken pedestal is worth maybe 20.00, and the top of the birdbath, around 100.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
