This very early McCoy cookie jar is black with a cold paint design of fruit.
The cookie jar is of the round ball shape and is the 6-pint size.
These McCoy cookie jars were produced from 1939-1944. They are had molded handles and were most were produced in green, yellow or blue and had a flower design.
This cookie jar is rare in several respects. It is black and has a fruit, rather than a flower, design. It also has a round final knob. Many of these cookie jars had slanted finials. Also most of these cookie jars have no mark, this one is marked "USA."
The biscuit jar itself is 6 inches high; with the lid it is 8 inches to the top of the knob. The cookie jar is 7 1/2 inches in diameter at the fullest part. There is wear to the cold paint fruit design.
The cookie jar has no cracks or chips. There are two tiny chips in the rim of the lid (see smaller picture).
This rare and wonderful McCoy cookie jar will be a great addition to your antique or vintage McCoy, pottery or kitchenware collection.
