Can you give me an idea what this crock might be worth or how I can find out?
Your crock is an unusual size to have made it this far in time. They were used for pickles, lard, etc., so seeing them in good shape is a plus. The 10 on it means it is a 10-gallon. The crown is the mark of Robinson Ransbottom Co. They were located in Roseville, Ohio. You can do further research on your piece by searching that information.
Now for the pricing, remember that condition and age matter. There are still modern made crocks out there with the same markings. So if yours is an antique one and in good condition with no cracks, the value would be in the $120 range. If it’s a modern made one, the value would be less in the secondary market.
This size crock is great for dog food, or maybe for use as an end table — you can probably get a round wood top for it at a hardware store.
