This vintage McCoy Cookie Jar base dates from 1940 to 1943. He is McCoy Company's " Penguin " but also has been misnamed the " Pelican " over the years. He is very rare and especially to find in this excellent of condition, without his head, so if you watched for one where you could just use the head you would have the whole jar.

Overall excellent vintage condition for its age. No cracks. No chips. Only a bit of edge rim wear and tiny inner edge wear marks, smooth to touch, and typical factory glaze misses at the rim and base edge, which McCoy and others commonly did. Also a bit of light age crazing, see photos, mostly on its right back wing.

The color is a beautiful aqua green blue turquoise and in different lighting it goes one way or the other.

I think a bouquet of colorful mums or daisies as a table centerpiece would look awesome in this, as well as a lovely cottage porch decoration. It is a cheerful piece of McCoy pottery to add that whimsical charm to any room. Priced as a collectible vintage pottery vase / rare cookie jar base with vintage cottage personality!
