Oh gosh, it's Thursday again! I really enjoyed seeing everyone's vintage treasures last week, and even though I'm not really a cookie-jar collector, seeing one participant's lamb cookie jar made me thing of this one:
I don't know how well the pic is going to show up; there's not a lot of light in my house, especially on a rainy day like today. The cow cookie jar was given to me by my grandmother who said she bought it when my dad and his brothers were little boys. So some time in the 1930's. It was always in her kitchen, and I can remember being fascinated with it as a kid (or maybe I was just fascinated by the cookies that were in it). Sorry I don't have a whole collection of cookie jars to show you--this is the only one I own, but I really like it. BTW, here's a little trivia: It was made by McCoy and they made one from the same mold but purple in color. The purple one is quite rare and very collectible. So if you happen to find a purple one at the right price, grab it quick!
