There are a few “brand names” that are recognized as premium products in the antique pottery market. McCoy Pottery is one of these. Started in 1910 by Nelson McCoy, their logo on vintage clay and pottery pieces guarantees quality.
This whimsical cookie jar was made by McCoy, probably in the 1970’s. It is signed on the bottom. Currently for sale in an EBay auction the 11” tall cookie jar has multiple bidders and the current bid is $24.95.
Always look for a “signature” on the bottom of your potential pottery purchases, and research them thoroughly. Good luck in finding a piece of pottery you’ll love forever!
“The very “marks” on the bottom of a piece of rare crockery are able to throw me into a gibbering ecstasy.”
