So when you are collecting crocks there is a very large range of price for crocks. The shapes and size need to be taking into a count, the cobalt decoration, the maker who made it, the degree of damage on the crock, the coloring those are all things to look for when your collecting a pot and when your try to decide how much to pay for a crock. You can buy a crock today for $10-$15 a really simple straight jug like this with no decoration. Then you can spend in the 1000s, 30,000, 40,000 dollars for a crock depending on the rarely on it. Some crocks with equal decoration just storage jugs like these are not much larger 2-3 gallons that I have seen equal jugs go for $20,000 or $30,000 so there is a price range for everyone out there when they are collecting these crocks. Some of the examples I have to show you today are a pretty good range that most people could afford to buy. So I would start by showing you this crock which is only a $25-$35 unsigned 19 century a little straight jug so that is a $25 jug. This gallon unsigned, straight jug, with a very little of cobalt cost you about $125 to a $150. Let me show you another simple Bennington northern because it is local for use here in New England these jugs tend to be more desirable this is a small size and this could cost you anywhere from $150 to a $250. Depending on the decoration this is a nice deep color, very simple design though but it is clean it has a very tiny line on the top. But for the most part it doesn't have just a little bit of wear in the inside. No chips, no lines, no restoration so in here, here is a crock that has been restored this is a very desirable Asheville crock but it has restoration to it so it's value is somewhere between $250 and $500. The restoration could have been better but still because it is a local crock it is still commends that kind of money. Here is another example of a restore Asheville crock these crocks are still really highly sold after this is probably about a $300 two gallon crock.
