The Famous McCoy Aunt Jemima Cookie Jar:

Here is a larger picture of a well-loved McCoy cookie jar:

The McCoy cookie jar is about a foot tall. It was made between 1944 and 1947.

I have read but not confirmed that over 100,000 of these cookie jars were produced. Literally the only widespread production of Aunt Jemima cookie jars ever made. However, because they were not originally collectors items, and because many were discarded after being considered derogatory, not that many remain. Even fewer are in good condition. On the other hand, since early production techniques were not as polished as they are today, real McCoy cookie jars may suffer from paint chips. Newer knock-offs will not have this problem. Ironically, then, a situation where a nicer looking jar is not as valuable as one with paint wear.

In full glory the figure is wearing a white dress with a red cap. There is red trim.

This McCoy jar was Originally made with lettering, "Dem Cookies shor am good".
