You are looking at a antique RUCKEL'S STONEWARE chicken feeder. This feeder is near mint condition. It has the base. The base's are one of the hardest pieces to find with any feeder. The base is not marked but does have some blue ink smudges of the same color of ink as the marks on the top. The top is marked. And is unusual because it is marked two times. I have not seen a RICKELS feeder with two marks. Most feeders like RED WING and WESTERN have only one mark. I could only find one chip on the inner liner of the top. Looks as the glaze chipped from the stoneware. T is no stoneware missing from this chip, just the top glazing. These pieces measure about 9 1/2" Tall X 10 1/4" Round.
