25 Gallon Straight Sided Water Cooler with Birchleaf



Sending a couple of pictures of a 25 Gallon Straight Sided Water Cooler with Birchleaf Pattern, this item is going to be sold at a Sale, was wondering if you guys had a ball park figure, No Lid, but does have a hairline…Any Help Appreciated, I attended the Wisconsin Red Wing Expo this past winter near Milwaukee, Great Event!!




Now that is a great Ice-Water that you do not see very often.  Too bad about the hairline.  With the hairline, $1200 to $1500.  Al Kohlman

4 gallon lid made by the Red Wing Stoneware Company


Looking for more information and the value of this 4 gallon lid. I was told that this was a early lid made by red wing. I have never seen a lid with a star on it from redwing. This are 3 chips in the under side of the lid but no cracks or hairlines.

Thank You!

Answer: Kelly, your 4 gallon lid was made by the Red Wing Stoneware Company for their Success Filters.  With the chips underneath, the value is around $100.  Al Kohlman

10 gallon salt glazed butterfly North Star Stoneware


Hi Expert,

I recently acquired this crock, which I think is a Red Wing.

I was hoping you could tell me the current value and approximate year it was made.

It does have a very small hairline with a small chip above the 0 in the “10” and another 2″ hairline on the back top rim area. They are almost invisible.

The top rim does have a slight chip that is glazed over .

The cobalt is nice and dark, and a very clean crock.


Thank You,



Cary, your 10 gallon salt glazed butterfly was produced by the North Star Stoneware Company in Red Wing Minnesota sometime between late 1880’s to 1893 or so. It is one of the nicer 10 gallon North Star butterfly’s that I have seen.   Even with the small hairlines, I think the value would fall between $800 & $900.  Al Kohlman

Brennerberg Kansas molded advertising jug


Hi I was wondering what you can tell me about this jug with Kansas advertising.



This Brennerberg Kansas molded advertising jug is one that I have not seen before and therefore somewhat of a challenge to place a value on it.   A best guess would be between $1400 & $1800, however, it is a best guess only.   There are not a bunch of Kanas advertising pieces just falling out of the sky, so again, my best guess on this one.  Al Kohlman
