McCoy Cookie Jars

Cookie jar collectors are as varied a group as the cookie jars they collect.  Part of the reason for the diversity is because of crossover.  For example, if you are a ďCoca ColaĒ collector, among other things in your collection, could be one of many cookie jars with the Coca Cola brand.  On the other hand if you are a collector of Disney memorabilia, you may have a Disney character cookie jar.  Even the famous American artist, Andy Warhol was a cookie jar collector.  His collection of over 125 cookie jars brought in over $250,000 at auction in 1987.

Cookie jars have been around for a long time and I am sure that most of you at one time or another have seen them in your grandparentís or even your parentís home.  Some of you may even have them in your own homes.  Cookie jars origins have been traced back as far as the early 1700ís.  Most of the earlier ones are nothing more than a ceramic cylinder with a lid, with painted decorations. Many experts agree that the first mass produced ceramic cookie jars were made by the Brush Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. However, the most popular cookie jars for collectors are those from McCoy Pottery.

McCoy Pottery was started in 1910 by the father and son team of Nelson and J.W. McCoy, in Roseville, Ohio as the Nelson McCoy Sanitary Stoneware Company.  They had selected that area for their factory for the same reason the other big pottery companies had selected the area, because of the availability of clay.  In fact, McCoy not only manufactured earthenware, but they also mined, bought and sold clay to other factories in the area.  In the mid 1920ís, McCoy expanded their operation and began producing art pottery pieces for their more affluent customers.

McCoy produced cookie jars for about fifty years, from the mid 1930ís to the mid 1980ís. They have produced cookie jars in many different shapes, sizes and commemorate many historic people and events to include the greatApollo cookie jar.  However, none is as popular with collectors as Red Riding Hood and Black Americana jars that McCoy produced in the late 1930ís.  The example pictured above recently sold on Ebay for over $200.
