My Purex Red Wing Jug

One of my favorite pieces of pottery. This man just had to have the jug for himself.
He is a Red Wing collector and spotted it down stairs. After looking at it up close he begged and begged until I said I would sell it to him. He was so happy to take it home with him. I found it 20 years ago and enjoyed it very much. It was in perfect condition. For years the farmer that I bought the jug from, stored home made wine in it. He was an Italian man that enjoyed his wine. I didn't even know the value of the jug when I bought it or that Red Wing was collectible.
