With their origins dating back to 18th Century British biscuit jars, American-made cookie jars are fun, frivolous and fabulously collectible. Cookie jars as we know them today were only popularized in the U.S. around the time of the Great Depression. Today, stoneware cookie jars made by Brush, Hull, McCoy and others are highly prized by collectors. Featuring thousands of cookie jars by all the major manufacturers, valued and captured in full color, Warman's Vintage Cookie Jars is the most complete volume available for collectors. The book includes history, current values, information on fakes and reproductions, marks and much more. Presenting a visual and textual history of this unique kitchen art form, this book will prove to be as wonderful as the treats pulled from the cookie jars themselves.
