Crock ID - Ransbottom Brothers Pottery
by: Blake

Dear Mark,
Your crock was made by the Ransbottom Brothers Pottery Company of Roseville, Ohio. They were in business from 1900 to 1920. Often crocks such as yours are mistakenly thought to have been made by the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Company also of Roseville, Ohio. They started production in the 1930's and though they used a very similar crown mark their marks were impressed into the clay; not done in cobalt blue glaze.
For value try running a search on eBay for Ransbottom Crock. You might also try using Robinson-Ransbottom in your search but only note the prices of crocks marked in the same manner as yours.
I hope this helps.

Yours, Blake

thank you

Your crock is worth more than $30.00 I buy old crocks all the time. I just bought a crock with the crown and a 2 under it. (2 gallon capacity) and paid $30.00 that was a good price for it. I have seen the same size go for $45.00 to $50.00 when in good condition. I got a good deal

I have a 12 gallon Crown-stamped Ransbottom crock. It has handles on each side made of metal with red wooden dowel handles. Any idea what its value is? It stands 20" high and is 14" in diameter at the inside. It's ridiculously heavy.
