This vintage cookie jar is the Humpty Dumpty with Beanie and Bow Tie was apparently made between 1956 and 1961 by the Brush Pottery Company of Roseville, Ohio. It has all of the character and quality of a Brush cookie jar. A very round Humpty Dumpty with a wide grin is perched on a block wall. His yellow hat is the lid of the cookie jar. On the bottom it is marked; Brush W18 U.S.A. on three lines. The "W" indicates that this was a design of Don & Ross Winton.
It measures about 10" high with the lid on and the base measures about 7" wide by 6 1/4 deep". It is in good condition with little wear. It heavily crazed but no crazing goes through as to be a crack. The crazing makes the mold seam running down the sides of his head more evident but again, it is not evident on the inside and it not a crack. There is a flaw on the back corner which I have shown in the photos. This was glazed over and is a manufacturing flaw. The bottom and inside are stained as also shown in the photos. These elements have been taken into consideration in the pricing. This is an old cookie jar, not a reproduction.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
