Vintage Thingies Thursday

This is my first week to participate in Vintage Thingies Thursday. I've been looking at past posts and pictures and have decided to commit.

This week, I would like to share a vintage cookie jar. This is the newest addition to my vintage things as I got it last weekend at an auction. The auctioneer said it was Hall, but I usually don't believe what he says. There are no markings on the bottom, so I don't know the maker. I'm still researching.

Of course, a vintage cookie jar needs to be filled with cookies! This week's cookies are Double Butterscotch Cookies.

Make sure you check out all the pictures from the other participants of this week's VTT at Coloradolady. Thanks for hosting this weekly event, Suzanne!

Bea, I'm no expert but I don't believe it is a Hall, I have several books and I will look in them and see if I can fine it for you. I have been wrong before. But usually Hall will be marked on the bottom. It could be a Hull, they had several lines of Cookie jars.
No matter who it is by it is very beautiful and something to be proud of.

My mom had one of these, and I always loved it. And, a cookie recipe to fill it up, wow!

Welcome. I posted the same cookie jar a couple weeks ago. Ebay and other places refer to this as a Hull Pottery item but it is not marked as they would. I gave a few links for research, if you're interested. I love my jar! Your's looks in very good shape.

What a perfectly valid reason to buy a cookie jar. To put those cookies with ENGLISH TOFFEE somewhere! Very cute apple shape!

What a great cookie jar. Apples are my favorite. Definitely looks vintage.

The auctioneer must have meant to say "Hull". Your apple cookie jar is fabulous-- always a favorite with collectors! There are other pieces that go with this jar. Just go to eBay and type "Hull", apple in the search.
Welcome to VTT!
Enjoyed my visit!
Blessings to You!
