Donated by a generous parishioner, this Red Wing 20 lb stoneware butter crock is a rare piece in great condition. We are not experts or collectors, so please review all photos.

It is 7 1/2" tall and 11 1/2" in diameter, with the classic Red Wing logo on the front, under the blue 20 lb wording. It is a 4" Red Wing logo (more valuable than the smaller logo). The crock weighs a bit over 10 lbs.

We had some trouble getting good photographs because of glare; some of our first photographs made it appear that there was a defect in the glaze all around the crock. We believe the glaze is intact and that was a photography issue.

And, we have taken some tighter photos to show some minor defects around the rim. On Dec 3, a non-professional who has done pottery looked at the crock and added the following description:


The bottom is unglazed and has some shallow scratches that are visible in the photos. There appear to be no crowfeet or hairline cracks. The exterior has no crackling and no detectable hairline cracks. The inner part of the rim has two defects or chips that are visible in the photos.

We will double box this item for shipping, and mail with insurance and signature required. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions; we will respond quickly, and do our best to provide any information requested. Please view our other items and our collections.

The 4" logo adds value to this rare piece. Some 20-lb butter crocks were made with smaller logos, and those are less valuable.

Please compare this to the photos above to see that what appears to be a defect in the glaze or marking around the logo is in fact photography glare.

We are not experts or collectors; please examine this spot on the front. What appears to be a white line between the l and b of the lbs is in fact photography glare.

The dark spot shown here is not as dark in reality. What appears to be a larger, dark spot around the small spot is in fact photography glare. You will notice the same "spot" in all photos from that angle without a flash.

Notice the same photography glare "spot" in the middle of this photo as well-- it is not a glaze defect, it is because we are not professional photographers and had a hard time setting up this shot.

This is on the rim, and is 2" long. We are not collectors or experts; it may be a minor chip, or part of the original fabrication-- we do not know. Please see the images taken from above the pot looking down; this spot is difficult to see from above.
