This authentic McCoy cookie jar is their clown in a barrel, manufactured from 1953-1955.
These were hand decorated in various color schemes; ours has a green barrel with his nose, mouth, the ball of his hat and the word "cookies" all in worn red, the "rope" holding the cookie sign is gold, as is the edging of his sleeves and just a little along his hat.
About 11" to top of lid
20 and 5/8" around
Weighs 4# 7 oz without any packing
This has a wonderful patina, the paint has worn off in places, but he is still so charming.
Crazing evident, but structurally sound.
What a fun cookie jar for the grand-kids to snitch from...or, we've seen them used to store kitty and puppy treats in them, too.
