Hello I recently found this crock at a local store. It is in excellent condition. Would you please tell me of the approximate value. Thank you Wayne


Wayne, the 10 gallon Red Wing salt glazed leaf crock if in perfect condition would have a value between $650 & $750.  Al Kohlman

Beige Flieck, end of production pieces


I was wondering about these serving pieces and bowls that were with my parents’ Pepe dinnerware set.

Are they Redwing, do they have a name, and what would their values be?

The small bowls are 5″ in diameter, the big bowls are 8 1/4″ in diameter.

The big bowls have a faint circular pattern around the 1″ rim.

The oval serving dishes are 6 1/2″ long by 4″ wide, 8″ by 4 3/4″ and 9 1/4″ by 5 1/2″.  The medium and large size bowls do have the Redwing stamp on the back.  They each have a fluted “wing” rim at each end.

The big oval plate is 11 1/2″ by 9 1/4″.  It has a fluted pattern all around the rim.

The long {cracker ? pickle ?} boat is 15 1/2″ by 2 3/4″.

The plain free-form-shaped plate is roughly 10″ in diameter.

If you could pass these questions on to the experts, that would be wonderful.

Thank you, and best holiday wishes to you and yours!

With appreciation,



All of the items shown in the photos were made by Red Wing.

The three oval bowls with fluted rims are Bakers from the Hotel or Restaurant line.  Bakers were available in three sizes in either beige fleck or white.  These bakers appear to be white.

All of the other items in the photos were glazed after production ceased at Red Wing Potteries.  A fair amount of greenware (unfired pottery) remained in the plant after workers left in mid 1967.  The remaining staff applied whatever glazes were on hand to the greenware.  Beige fleck, the background color for Bob White and other patterns, is the glaze most commonly found on these end-of-production items.  These beige fleck pieces were sold to the public in the Red Wing Pottery Salesroom.

The 8 1/4″ large bowl is from the Village Green line.

The 5″ small bowl is from the Like China line.

The long 16″ dish is a celery dish from the True China line.

The 10″ dinner plate is from the True China line.

The photos I received do not include a large oval platter, but the “fluted rim” in your description leads me to believe it is likely from the Hotel or Restaurant line.

Most of these pieces have a value of $10-15 if they are in excellent condition.  The celery dish and the platter are worth $15-20.



Red Wing reversed oval 5 gallon butter churn


i have a 5 gal butter churn crock that has the stamp in the middle and the 4 inch red wing at the bottom. its the only one i have seen like this . what would be the reason for this? it is 15 in tall x 10.5 in mouth andy


Andy, you have what is called a Red Wing reversed oval 5 gallon butter churn.   Though not as common as most churns you see, they are not rare.   It basically would have been up to the potter when they applied the stamps as I have never heard of these being a special order.  Al Kohlman

Minnesota Stoneware Company 10 gallon unsigned salt glazed leaf crock



I recently purchased this salt glaze crock which I believe is a Minnesota/Red Wing piece.

I could not find one similar in the “Ask the Experts” pages in a ten gallon size.

It’s in excellent condition with only a small hairline on outside bottom edge that does not go through to the inside, and a 1/4 inch small flake on inside top rim.

The darker spots towards the bottom look much darker in the photo than they do on the actual crock.

I’m curious what its current value might be.

Thank You,


Cary, your  with the hairline on the bottom and small chip would have a value between $600 & $675 or so.  Even though the hairline is small, it stills affects its value. Nice looking piece!  Al Kohlman

20 gallon (unsigned) salt glazed Red Wing Stoneware butterfy decoration


Can you tell me what the value of this 20 gallon butterfly crock is (assuming the cracks didn’t exist)–damaged and trying to determine pre-accident value.

Thank you



Tami, if this 20 gallon (unsigned) salt glazed Red Wing Stoneware decorated 20 gallon butterfly were in perfect condition, the value would be $1500.  Al Kohlman

Celebrate 40 Project


The 2016 Convention will be the 40th Convention for the Red Wing Collectors Society.

To Celebrate the wonderful milestone coming. Chapter’s are working on the “Celebrate 40 project.” Each Chapter is encouraged to design a “40” of their own and incorporate photos, phrases, words, shards, memorabilia, and more.

Here are some ideas to get started on your Chapter’s “40”:

  • A Flat 40 – either actual size or smaller on paper, poster board or other material
  • 3-D 40 – metal, wood, plastic, re-purposed number(s), lumber, or paper craft as your canvas “fill it up”
  • A display of 40 items – a countdown of memories, messages, and photos

These 40’s can be a work in progress. They will be displayed at both the 2016 and 2017 Conventions; so, you will have the opportunity to add more between the two events.


  1. Will the 40 project replace the Chapter Challenge Baskets?
    Yes, the RWCS Board decided to implement this new event to celebrate the 40th Convention of the RWCS.
  2. Will these be for sale at some point?
    At this time, the projects are not being sold.
  3. What size can they be?
    They display needs to fit on a standard 8-foot table.
  4. Where will they be displayed?
    These will be in the Cafeteria area at both the 2016 and 2017 Conventions.
  5. Will these take the place of the current Chapter Story Boards located in locker area?
    No, these will be temporary displays for the 2016 and 2017 Conventions.
  6. What materials can be used in construction?
    Any materials at your disposal can be used to make the 40.
  7. Will the Society Store the displays for 2017?
    No, at this time the Chapters will need to take them and bring them back in 2017.
