Advertising Crocks Paal & Oshea and Mountian Lake


Hi. I have 2 small advertising Crocks. One seems to be in excellent condition and other has a small crack. Since I have no sentimental value to them, I’d like to sell them. It have no idea of their value.

Thank you



Sherry, The Mountain Lake beater depends on local demand $100-$200. The PAAL & O’SHEA is worth around $150.00-$200.00 with the damage.



3 Red Wing Churn with no oval



I just purchased this #3 Union Stoneware crock.  Can you give me information on this piece.  There is not , and it does not appear it ever had the blue stamp under the wing.

The wing itself feels like it has been embossed into the crock rather than stamped. Does the lid look like an original, or what an original would look like?  The lid has a chip on the interior rim, the crock has no chips or cracks.

Lastly, can you give me an idea of value?

Thank you for your time.



Barb, Your 3 gallon butter churn has a value around $165.00. It has a lot of ink on it when they stamped the wing  that why it’s a little smudged and you can feel it. The lid is not Red Wing and goes on a crock.

Lexington Rose Pitcher


I have the Red Wing Lexington Rose pitcher, 13″ tall but the bottom logo has the black oval “RW 7”. Does this give it more resale value like on eBay rather than $25 you state. From my research, this logo on my pitcher was made prior to the “red” Red Wing logo other dinnerware. I want to know if it gives it more value as this means it’s older.  And real important: do you know the exact year the Lexington Red Wing pitcher debuted?

Thank you,
Cat H.


The Lexington pattern was introduced in 1941.  The water pitcher was among the available items from the beginning.  The red and green colors on early Lexington pieces, including the water pitcher, were lighter.  The rose was closer to pink than red.  The black “upright wing” ink stamp was used to mark items from 1941 until the late 1940s.  This mark is occasionally seen in green or blue.
Sometime in the late 1940s, probably 1947, the “RW” ink stamp was introduced and the colors of the pattern darkened. This mark was used for a fairly brief period and is the least common mark of the three marks used on Lexington items.
The familiar pinkish-red stylized wing ink stamp was introduced in 1950.  The red and green colors continued to darken. Many new pieces were added to the Lexington pattern between the late 1940s and 1955.  Lexington was discontinued in 1955.
In my experience most collectors pay little attention to the ink stamp used to mark a particular piece.  Condition and the quality of the artwork are far more important.  There might be a few collectors who seek to add a pitcher with each of the three logos but there aren’t enough of them to influence market prices. Older doesn’t necessarily mean more valuable when it comes to dinnerware.  Some collectors find the darker colors more attractive, so they place a higher value on the later pieces of Lexington than those made early in production.

10 gallon salt glaze Red Wing leaf crock


This piece came from my father’s house, and I suspect it came from his parents’ house in Waseca, MN. I can find no other markings on the crock. Thank you for your time.



Jean, Your 10 gallon salt glaze leaf crock is Red Wing. A big leaf will bring around $1000 in mint condition to the right person. The chip will bring it down $600-$800 .

Pair of Salt Glaze lids


Hi –

I came across these 3 lids for our collection earlier this summer. The pair of salt glazed (one and two gallon) and the other 2 gallon that’s Albany slip. I’ve done a couple of searches on the site, but have come up empty on anything.

I’d love to know more about these; the year ranges they were likely produced in, if only one of the Red Wing companies made each, and their value.

Thanks for your time,




These 2 lids are Red Wing salt glaze. 1 gal. value  $100-$125 , The 2 gal. Value around $200-$250 in mint condition.
