Customer Question
friend had the crocks in...
My husband bought me 5 Crocks from a friend of his. His friend had the crocks in his work shop under his work bench. The friend (age 63) said they were his grandmothers. I'm wondering what my antiques crocks are worth? I have a 20 gallon White Hall ILL with handles, 20 gallon Western Stoneware Company Monmouth ILL, 15 (has a wire ring around the top)& 12 gallon Blue Ribbon Brand Buckeye Pottery Co. Macomb ILL and a 1/2 pint Straight Corn Whiskey bottle McCormick Distilling Co. Weston, Missouri w/ 135-68 11-D16 Stamped on the bottom. I have no clue what they are worth, what type of markings to look for or how to have them appraised and they are to big to hall around ???

If you want we can start with the crocks and the other items can be appraised as new questions in the site.

About the crocks, can you upload a picture ? Also, could you find any kind of manufacturer mark or label?

Thanks

I have been collecting and selling museum displays from
I have been collecting and selling museum displays from items I've happened across since 1975, while mostly in the service. My shroud of turin was one of 15 made by the sturp team and I sold it along with Items collected in the Middle East as The last week of Jesus to the Holyland Experience in Orlando, Fl. I keep the others for my house in Dallas. Now i'm downsizing and still have most in specially built crates that I keep in Climate controlled environment. I have a a refurbished "Our Lady of Guadalupe" made by the Team allowed to photograph it during the restoration in 1963 in which the Church allowed the Tilman to be viewed with the protective glass removed. In addition I have a full sized "Copper Scroll" scribed inscribed in the various languages that Is mounted on a felt backed display, the only one that I know of from Amman Jordan where the original is located. The Gutenberg Bible is an exact replica of the UT Austin with special Plexiglas's Bobble top. The Bible is a facsimile of one in France that was a copper box type and circa 1959-60, placed in a NYC warehouse until I was able to acquire it in 2012. The final item is a metal set of window type frames in which I placed the most divervse and uninique set of one page examples that show the different materials the uses. The gray backing can be added or removed as the frames contain the Plexiglas documents from Israel and can be put on easels included, sat on a alter or hung. I have them as photos on my face book page. Do you or anyone you know appraise Museum Items such as these? … read more
