This is a rare original antique 5 gallon Red Wing self draining stoneware jar, similar in style to a 5 gallon Red Wing water cooler, with the original metal handles. Condition is excellent; there are a few small chips along the bottom edge (shown in the photos) and a crow's foot on the inside surface of the bottom by the hole, but the crow's foot does not go through to the bottom of the jar. The entire piece is in otherwise excellent condition, glaze is smooth, shiny, and even with no flea bites, the markings are bold, and the handles are not rusty.
It displays beautifully and could be used for a variety of decorative purposes.
