This old figural mug of a young Davy Crockett was made by the Brush Pottery Company of Roseville, Ohio around 1956. Brush made many fine cookie jars and often made companion mugs which is the case here. This is a young, little boy version of Davy Crockett with baby like facial features, a hint of blush on his cheeks and a little lock of yellow hair showing below his cap. Davy's raised hand is on the end of his gun barrel which makes the handle on this piece. He is depicted as wearing his frontiersman outfit and coon hat. He has a pack on his back and what appears to be a powder horn in his right hand. The stock of his rifle has his name on it. The bottom is unglazed and it is unmarked but this cup is identified in several cookie jar books.
It measures about 4 7/8” high and about 4 ½” wide at the top from the left rim edge to the outside edge of his left hand. It is in very good condition with minimal wear, no damage and no repairs.
