Sorry for my slow response, but here is the picture of the small jug. It is in excellent condition. Don’t know if the market is still strong for RW. Bought this about 40 years ago. Have been deaccessioning my various collections. Would appreciate your opinion. Thanks much.
This is a quart size jug made by North Star in Red Wing Minnesota. In mint condition a value would be around $150-$200.
I'm helping my father do some research on a 6 gallon Red Wing butter churn. He is considering selling and would like to know the value, if possible. It has a crack near the top (picture included) and my understanding is there was a hole in the bottom of the churn that was repaired at one point (not sure how big it was, including a picture of the bottom of the churn). Also, it looks like there might be a crack over the advertising but the glaze still feels smooth so I'm not sure if it's a crack or some other defect. The lid is not shown but we do have it and is believed to be the original.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Any info you can provide would really be appreciated.
Amanda, This is a nice 6 gallon advertising churn! With a crack and repaired hole it still has a value around $1200.
We don’t find a lot of Redwing up here in BC Canada, but I have seen some beautiful pieces when we travel in the US. I was surprised to find this piece at my local thrift store the other day... sadly no lid.
From reading some of your website I see it has the “Union” oval and the birch leaves. I would be interested in knowing when these ice water crocks were produced and a value if possible! It is in pretty darn good shape - a small chip or two at the back on the base.
I appreciate any information you can supply.
Eva, Your 6 gallon Birch Leaf Ice Water was manufactured by the Minnesota Stoneware Company in Red Wing Minnesota sometime between 1895 & 1906. In mint condition it has a value between $700-$800. Chips on the backside base, still $600-$700.
