This old cookie jar is called the Collegiate Owl and was made by the American Bisque company in 1958. As with most American Bisque pottery this is a colorful piece. The Owl wears a tasseled cap, blue rimmed glasses and holds a book that reads; COOKIES. His head is quite large which makes him very impressive. It is marked USA on the backside.
It measures about 11 1/4" tall and is in very good condition with no damage. There is some staining on the bottom which shows in the crazing on the bottom of the inside.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
