Cookie Jars are Hot!!
Since I come across lots of cookie jars here in the Sarasota and St Petersburg area I’ll share some facts with you so you don’t accidently toss out one of these gems.
Vintage makers of some very pricey jars are Metlox, Roseville, Hull, Brayton Laguna, Treasure Craft, Shawnee, McCoy, Brush-McCoy, Lefton, Carlton Ware, Noritake, Regal China, Usa Pottery, Redwing and Abingdon.
Contemporary makers include Fitz & Floyd, Christopher Radko, Vandon, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox and Appleman.
Mostly you’ll find them made of ceramic, however I’ve seen expensive ones in glass by Hazel Atlas, vintage carnival glass by makers such as Northwood, early 1900’s tin and even plastic ones from Fitz & Floyd!
Cartoon characters like Baby Huey, Pop Eye, Olive Oyl, Little LuLu, Sylvester & Tweetie, Casper the Ghost, Betty Boop, Looney Tunes characters etc. can bring hundreds for vintage jars in good condition.
Ditto for Movie characters like Wizard of Oz characters, Star Wars such as C3PO, R2D2 etc, W.C.Fields, Oliver & Hardy, Robin Hood, Batman etc.
TV characters–Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger, Star Trek, Howdy Doody, The Munsters, The Flintstones and Disney characters such as Tinkerbell, Pinocchio, Donald Duck, Dumbo etc.
Storybook characters–Red Riding Hood, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Alice in Wonderland, Goldielocks, Pixies and other
Western such as stagecoaches, Cowboys, Indians, Davy Crockett, Sheriff, Indian Teepee.
General figurals such as the Dutch Girl, the Sailor Boy, Aunt Jemima, Dogs & Cats, Lions, Cows, Pigs, Ear of Corn, Astronauts and Rockets.
I’ve seen every one of the characters mentioned above sell for hundreds of dollars for jars in good condition and I’ve just barely scratched the surface!!!
Jars in the form of classic cars made by Appleman are very hot right now.
Always check it out before you throw it out!!!
