Antiques Considered - June 12, 2013

The gentleman who had last week’s two stoneware pieces also has these two cookie jars. Other than the expected wear, they are in excellent condition. The yellow one has hand-painted floral decoration, whereas the brown one is unadorned. Both have their

original lids, but bear no indication of the factory that made them. They have been family pieces for several generations, and have been used for cookie storage up until recently. The owner asks whether the paining on the yellow one could be original. Cookie jars remain one of the most collectible genres in the antiques world. They always are in demand, and sell well both in auctions and estate sales, as well as in shops. These two are good examples. The brown one dates from the early twentieth century, and is a less popular form. It is worth $75. The yellow one with the hand-painted decoration is a horse of a different color, to “overwork” a cliché. It two is early twentieth century, and is more in keeping with the traditional design of a cookie jar. Yellow is perhaps the most popular color, and the paining only makes it more desirable. It reminds me of an old one we had in our home when I was a child. The color is still vibrant, and the painting is well done. Undoubtedly, the paining came on it from the factory, and was not an add-on, done by a family member. This cookie jar would be a good addition to anyone’s collection. At auction it likely would go for over $100, and perhaps more, given the everpresent popularity of good examples. Cookie jar collectors’ clubs and societies abound, and always are looking for new members. I suggest contacting some of them to inquire if owners of similar ones might know the name of the factory that made each of these two. Happy Antiquing!
