Rare Mammy Cream Yellow Cookie Jar Mosaic Tile Co.(?) Black Americana Very Fine For Sale

Rare Mammy Cream Yellow Cookie Jar Mosaic Tile Co.(?) Black Americana Very Fine

Up for offers today is an unmarked Mammy cookie jar in the cream/yellow color as shown. I have researched this and believe it to be an original item manufactured by the Mosaic Tile company. Although she is unmarked, the information I came across indicated that this company produced many items that weren't.Another source indicated that reproductions of this jar have been produced, with the most common ones marked with a B on the base. As this one is unmarked, I believe it to bethe original version and not the reproduction version. Normal wear and tear around the base bottom, otherwise she is in perfect condition. Rather rare and hard to find. About 12.5 inches tall.

As with all my listings, I welcome any instructive comments as to age, condition, authenticity, original use or rarity. I am not an expert or even acollector; these come from my Father's estate and I am just trying to pass them along to someone who has an interest in such things.

Based upon other similar items I've looked up on and suggested values from the other collector I mentioned, I'm putting a low starting price so it can be considered by everyone who may be interested. Please don't ask me for a Buy It Now price; I am a free-market kind of guy and will let the value be determined as such.

Happy offerding and email me with comments, questions or requests for more information.

Shipping fee listed is for US buyers only please. For shipping to other than the lower 48, please ask for quote.

UPDATE: The same er who sent me the email (to which I responded and postedboth his question and my response in the"questions" section of the listing) has challenged me again on theauthenticity of this piece.His comments were:

The ORIGINAL Mosiac Tile mammy was made in the 1940s and 1950s.
It is a heavy jar made of pottery. From your photos your jar appears more like a light ceramic (as most all NEW cookie jars) and not the heavy pottery.
Also If you look around the bottom edge at the base of your jar there is no wear.
An original jar would show some wear since it would be over 60+ years old.
The weight of your jar alone should be a tell tale sign of age.Perhaps your jar was not made yesterday but it was probably made within the last 15 years and certainly does not have the value the original jar has.

My response to this is to reinterate what I have previously stated: I DON'T KNOW anything about this jar except what I have gleaned from various sources on the internetand from other listings (sold and listed) on ,but I KNOW FOR A FACT that it has been under my parent's cupboard for at least 25 years, and that they collected many antiques, most of which were definitely authentic, very valuable items. Maybe they were embarrassed about being taken on this one and hid it away, or maybe it was Grandma's and they were embarrassed because of the subject matter. I DON'T KNOW!I am not trying to scam anyone here, and I invite those who think it is a reproduction to NOT offer MORE THAN THAT VALUE! Please notice in my original, uncompromised description I clearly state that I am "not an expert or even a collector". I am a square er, and will continue to post any and all instructive comments. If you're not sure, DONT offer! I won't be out anything, and will continue to sleep just fine!
