A miniature success
Red Wing Collectors Society unveiled the 2014 commemorative — a success filter — Thursday morning. Red Wing Stoneware Co. manufactured close to 3,000 miniature filters for this year’s convention.
Full-size original water purifiers or filters were manufactured here starting in the late 1800s. Poured into the upper crock and covered, water seeped through a porous bottom into a cooler below.
