Vintage McCoy Cobalt Blue and Gray/ White Milk Can Canister #253 Circa 1974

This is a great cobalt blue and grey white two-toned milk can canister by McCoy. Medium- #253. Stands 9 inches tall and has a base diameter of 6 inches with a 4.5 inch opening. The lid does have a small chip on the underside edge. Please see pictures. Does not stand out.

Great utilitarian piece! Holds a ton of receipts! That is what service I had it perform for me. Of course, you decide what you want to hide in it! I am also listing the next size up from this one. There are only 2 of them. This listing is for the smaller of the two.

A little online history on the LCC and McCoy era marks-


"In 1974 the Lancaster Colony Corporation (LCC) purchased the McCoy pottery. The LCC gradually abolished all the marks used during the previous six years and resumed using the name "McCoy", in the style that was first used in the 1940's. The LCC did however add their initials "LCC" to the mark, and typically "USA". Given below are three of these marks. Note that both embossed and incised marks occur. As mentioned earlier, the inclusion of the style number in the mark became more prevalent with time, and it was generally included on the LCC pieces. " Thank you McCoy Collectors Society!
