Pottery. On a pottery blog. Go figure!
I have been horribly remiss in checking for pottery identification emails. Because that address has been around for awhile, it is almost over-run with spam. For those of you who have sent pottery photos, thanks for your patience. I will try to get to them as soon as I can.
This cookie jar pic was sent in by Penny, who was wondering if it could be Brush. The bottom is marked W8.
Since I don't collect cookie jars, let me warn you that many were reproduced, and I don't know which ones or how to spot the fakes. I know some of them are pretty good ones. So I advise getting the opinion of someone who is more knowledgeable in cookie jars just to be sure.
But yes, this is a Brush cookie jar. It can be found on the bottom of page 134 of "The Guide to Brush McCoy Pottery" by Martha and Steve Sanford, and it is listed as #W8. They list the value as $350-400 (1992-93 price guide).
I hope that helps!
