McCoy Mammy Aunt Jemima Cookie Jar Black Americana COLLECTIBLE!! In 1910, Nelson McCoy established the Nelson McCoy Sanitary Stoneware Co.
This area of Ohio provided a good source for natural clay and the McCoy firm used this clay to manufacture decorative stoneware. Predominantly producing earthenware pieces for kitchen use, the company expanded in 1925 modernizing its production facilities. Decorative pieces were produced in addition to their traditional kitchen items.By the mid 1920, McCoy hired designers to sculpt and decorate the pottery. During the Depression, McCoy condensed resources by working with other pottery firms in the American Clay Products organization. By 1933, the company was renamed, the Nelson McCoy Pottery Company and many new designs were introduced. In addition to the firm's famous figural cookie jars, McCoy planters, vases, and other utilitarian pottery remain popular with collectors. These pieces regularly command high values.
