Rare Mosaic Tile Mammy Cookie Jar (original & Perfect) Black Americana:
This Mosaic Tile Mammy is in perfect condition without any chips, cracks or crazing! The color of her dress, apron and turban is a light blue and the turban has brown dots on it. The detail of her face is amazing; you can see each individual tooth in her smile and her eyes are life-like. Some of these pics were taken with a flash and some without so you can see more of the detail of this beautiful cookie jar. The jar was not cold painted -- it is covered with glaze. The jar is unmarked. We read some very interesting background information on this jar in, "The Complete Cookie Jar book" by Mike Schneider. It was designed in either 1943 or 1944 and it appears she was manufactured up until the company closed in 1967. Another interesting note was thatthis jar was not made as a sales item -instead they were given as gifts and primarily to architects. We have bought and sold about 700 jars and this one is probably the heaviest one that we have owned.
