Offered for your consideration is the "Go Ahead Make a Pig of Yourself" Cookie Jar by DeForest Pottery of California. This anthropomorphic cookie jar is shaped as the head of the cutest pig ever! The molded facial features are highlighted by round, dimpled, rosy cheeks in his blush-pink to brown face. He has DeForest’s distinctive white eyes with large, black irises and long, black, painted-on eyelashes. The painted black eyebrows are on the cover, and his raised, black nose is at the center with incised nostrils and a smiling mouth and an impudent red tongue below. The typical floppy ears of the Make a Pig of Yourself line top the cover and form handles. The famous phrase “Go Ahead Make a Pig of Yourself!” is hand-lettered on the top.
This cookie jar is nearly spherical with measurements of approximately 6-1/2 inches tall with the cover by 6-1/4 inches wide by 7-inches front to back. The jar is 4-1/4 inches without the cover and the opening is 5-1/4 inches in diameter.
Made by Deforest Pottery of California circa the 1950s, there is no mark.
Both the jar and the cover are covered with non-discolored crazing, and the crazing on the inside bottom of the jar has just begun to discolor slightly. The lettering on the top shows minor wear. There are no other condition issues.
