You may have seen the California Originals dressed up bear cookie jar in a 1970s matte woodgrain brown finish. This cold painted bright school bus or mustard yellow bear jar is the exact same mold but obviously much earlier. The company originally started out in 1946 under a different name and began making cookie jars a couple of years later under the California Originals name.

The cookie jar stands 11-1/2 inches high. The bear has a tuft of hair on his head, big cartoon-style eyes, and wears a collared bolero style jacket with red and white striped necktie.There is some typical wear to the cold red and black paint as shown, but no damage or crazing. There are no marks that I could find, but unless they bought the mold from another company, it has to be one of the first California Originals cookie jars.
