National Silver Pottery Black Americana Mammy Cookie Jar

National Silver Pottery Black Americana Mammy Cookie Jar
Adding to our Black Americana collection, this wonderful Mammy cookie jar was distributed by the National Silver Company in the late 1940s / early 1950s. According to the Illustrated Value Guide to Cookie Jars, Book II, the National Silver Company 'was another distributor that did not manufacture any of the products they sold. It is difficult to tell who made the cookie jars for them since they had several different companies commissioned to manufacture the items they sold.'

There is a bit of the cold painted decoration that remains on her apron, and her lips aren't quite as rosy red as they once were, but other than that, the only thing I note is a glaze fleck on the bottom rim, off to one side of one foot (barely detectable in the 4th photo). No chips, cracks, or crazing noted.

Stands 9 inch high with a base diameter of 6 inches. Marked USA - N.S.Co.
