Rare find to see a Bauer Red Cookie Jar. This is stamped on its base as BAUER, LOS ANGELES. It weighs 3lbs 7.1 ounces, no cracks or chips. It is one of many Bauer Red (orange) that I have in my collection. It dates to the onset of Bauer Multi-ring production beginning in 1933 with the design work of Louis Ipsen. I do not see this color being produced in the newer Bauer. This piece was manufactured in Las Angeles and this mark was prominent from 1936 through 1946. In the Book, "Bauer Pottery", the estimated start of Red-Orange was 1933.
