George S. Brush founded the Brush Pottery Company in Zanesville, Ohio in December 1906. Fire and flooding destroyed the Brush plant in November 1908. In January 1909, George Brush became secretary and general manager of J.W. McCoy Pottery company and two years later this form bought out the remaining assets of the Brush Pottery Company. The company name changed from Brush-McCoy Pottery back to Brush Pottery Company in 1925.
Brush McCoy produced the Mystic Bug in 1927. Two types were made: 1 that was a radio and the other that was a door stop. The colors are outstanding and there is exceptional detail to the legs and face. According to the Brush ad, it is cool, unique and interesting. Well , that is an understatement. This would make a unique gift! Outstanding detail and ready for display.
Wonderful bug in that it has no chips or crazing but has been repaired which can be seen on the underside of the bug. This bug was definitely used as a door stop as there is normal wear from its use. The macro lens magnifies the wear but looks exceptional when viewing in person. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Repair to the side. Dimensions are below.
Please review the high resolution pictures because they are part of the description. The pictures are taken with a macro lens which show exceptional detail. Please review each picture carefully and contact with any questions.
