Stoneware Cookie Jar / Bean Pot
This antique clay pottery, hand-painted Jar belonged to my grandmother. Some paint is worn but overall it's nice. Glazed inside and out. 2 small chips on bottom of cover but not visible when cover is on jar. It's about 10" x 10". It would make a great display piece.
My 99yr. old grandmoher past away recently. While there's a lot we can't part with, there's even more we can't keep. My mom remembers the jar from when she was little.
*Updated info on age*
Up till recently I mistakenly thought it was made in the 1930's. I've since learned it's much older. A jar identical to this was used as a prop in the kitchen of the Cartwright's ranch on the TV show 'Bonanza'; which I knew. What I didn't realize is that the show was supposed to have taken place between 1861-1867; shortly after the American Civil War. Their's was likely an antique when they used it in the show. I don't know how long they made this type of jar but the pottery style is consistant with pottery of that era. So was likely made before the turn of the century; making it over 100 years old; possibly over 150 years. It must have been an antique when my grandmother got it.
