SOLD! 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.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
