When I was a kid growing up in Texas, we knew an apple cheeked, wiry old woman with a cherubic smile named "Miz Hicks" --- she'd be called upon from time to time to stand in as surrogate mother when mom accompanied daddy on a business trip. Miz Hicks looked like the merest breeze would sweep her off her feet, but she was surprisingly tireless and brooked no nonsense from five rambunctious children. And she could bake the meanest Coca Cola cake you ever tasted.

This is her cookie jar.

National Silver Co. imported this wonderful piece of Black Americana in the 1940s. There is still a fair amount of cold paint remaining on Mammy's apron and face . There are no chips or cracks --- overall crazing is visible on the interior. I loved the expression on this mammy's face, as if to say, "why of course you need to get you some cookies, honey -- come on and help yourself".
Which we did.

Measures 9 1/4 inches tall by 6 inches in diameter at the bottom.

Like Miz Hicks, this old cookie jar has strength of character and a lot of livin' left to do ---
