Featured in this lot we have a six gallon red wing glazed crock originating from the early 20th century. Red Wing Union Stoneware, now Red Wing Pottery, refers to American stoneware, pottery, or dinnerware items made by a company initially set up in Red Wing, Minnesota, in 1861 by German immigrant John Paul, which changed its names several times until finally settling on Red Wing Potteries, Inc. in 1936. The pottery factory that started in 1861 continues to the present day under the names of Red Wing Pottery and Red Wing Stoneware. This butter churn is marked across the front reading "6 Union Stoneware Co. Red Wing, Minn" with a leaf design. The piece shows a wooden churn stick with a ceramic lid. The churn displays two hand holds on the side and glazed exterior. The churn shows good condition overall with some light wear. The piece measures 27 1/2" tall by 10" wide.
