Offered here is a nice collectible cookie jar for collectors of Black Memorabilia or cookie jar collectors. This piece is a good example and is signed "Brayton" on the bottom of the jar. There is also a mark in pencil that looks like a loop.
The marks are incised into the clay. I do not know much about cookie jars but maybe this one is somewhat rare? Resembles a McCoy design but is not signed McCoy. The bottom is also unglazed. It stands 13 inches high and 8 inches across the bottom.
There are a few paint flecks on the jar probably happened with everyday use over the years. I have tried to show these as best I can in the photos.Overall in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. This is from the estate of my friend who was 88 when she passed.
She had this jar for many years. See my other auctions for more estate items.
