Collecting Cookie and Biscuit jars

Raiding the cookie jar


McCoy, American Bisque, Brush, Abingdon, Regal China, Roseville and Shawnee — all the grand old pottery companies in the USA, made cookie jars of some type or another and they are all highly collectible brands. Likewise in Europe, some of the famous brands like Royal Dalton, Moorcroft, Wedgewood, Royal Staffordshire and Clarice Cliff all produced cookie jars or biscuit jars, as they preferred to call them.  Cookie/biscuit barrels or jars, have been used in England since the latter part of the 18th century. This coincided with the rise in popularity of the ritual of afternoon tea drinking. In the USA, cookie jars started to appear around 1929 and went into wider production during the ’30s, the  Brush Pottery Company in Zanesville being recognized as the first. The golden age  for American cookie jar production covers the years from 1940 until 1970, with several manufacturers rising to prominence.

In 1988, Sotheby`s auctioned off Andy Warhol’s belongings, including 175 cookie jars. The New York auction house estimated they would fetch $7,000. After the spirited bidding had reached its final conclusion, the collection had gone for $247,830. Most of the  of the interest was generated by the Warhol name but it also put cookie jars into a different dimension of respectability in the collecting sphere. A discernible lift in the interest in cookie jar collecting followed. Over the decades Cookie Jars have represented various pop culture trends and have quite often featured outlandish designs.

Even newer cookie jars are in demand. Collectors are purchasing  jars made in the `70s, `80s and ’90s  if they are Limited Editions or in mint condition.

A high priestess in mosaic art – Irinia Charny

 A lady at the canals of Venice mosiac by Irinia-Charny‘Carnevale a Venezia’ – Irinia Charny mosaic



 Irinia-Charny ceramic mosaic of lady playing a mandolin

‘Serenading Gustav’


Ceramic, glass and bead mosaics :


 Irinia Charny came to the USA in 1975 and is currently based in Irving, California. She studied various artistic disciplines ranging from large scale soft sculpture to polymer clay, to flameworked glass. Later on she worked as a computer programmer and librarian. She stumbled into the mosaic arts when she decided to redecorate an earthquake damaged fireplace with a mosaic design. Fortunately this blossomed into a full time career where she now creates mosaic panels, mirrors, decorative objects, and murals.

 ” As a child growing up in Russia, even before I knew they were called mosaics, I created collages from pieces of broken glass found in the street, rocks, paper, seashells, and bits of crockery. Through the years I tried various media for artistic expression but have now returned to my origin — mosaics. This medium gives me a chance to explore color, shape, and texture, to experiment with different materials, and satisfy the passion to integrate unrelated small bits into a single work of art. “


 Irinia-Charny-mosaic wall panel of 3 byzantine figures

‘Byzantine Trio’


Irina is a self-taught mosaicist who is inspired by the rich history of the medium and  strives to build a unique and personal art form on a base of classical mosaics. She draws her inspiration from music, dance, nature, myths, legends, fairy tales, stories, poems, nightmares, hopes, desires, fears, jokes, fantasies, and other flights of the imagination. The themes of Irina’s mosaics range from the lyrical to the whimsical. Each of her pieces has the innate ability to draw you into her rich worlds of beauty and intricate detail.

“In addition to traditional mosaic tesserae, I incorporate unusual materials in my work including mirror, pebbles, found objects, beads, buttons, wire, handmade ceramic pieces, and broken plates. I never return home empty handed from a walk on the beach or a trip. Beach glass, pebbles from a path on Hampstead Heath, broken glass from a studio in Seattle, a bit of bone found on the shore are special little bits that are inserted into each mosaic to give it a special, personal meaning.”

The spirals, swirls, scrolls and waves of Carol Long’s pottery.


I have always found Art Nouveau design to be entrancing with its graceful, undulating lines and coalescence of diverse details. I am reminded of this when I view the pottery of Carol Long. Working from a family farm studio in Kansas, Carol reproduces the beauty of her surrounding environment into her pieces using floral and insect motifs, combined with flowing lines, merging into leaf and  plant details . She incorporates a myriad of designs, textures and vibrant colours using slip trailing, sgraffito, pressed shapes, glazed surfaces, and plain clay surfaces all in one piece and manages to infuse a harmonic balance and rhythm into the final result. In Carol’s words : ” My work continues to evolve.  Currently I use a white mid temperature clay body fired to cone 5 oxidation.  Pieces are made by a variety of methods; such as throwing, slabwork, extrusions, and hand building.  Decorating with pulled handles and  attached  multiple pieces that are textured with presses, slip trailing, stains and glazes.”

Originally inspired to be an artist by her mother, she has also received inspiration from her three children, which explains the carefree whimsy evident in her pottery.

Art, paintings and pottery


Nearly all of the the great masters in art have used pottery images in their works, from Monet to Van Gough to Cezanne. Its been a consistent feature in their still life paintings, especially where flowers are involved. The innately beautiful colours of flowers and the rich colours in pottery glazes usually provide vivid subject matter.

Most art classes usually fit in a session or two where you are confronted with flowers in a vase. It has also served as a great historical reference for the evolution of pottery through the ages. Throughout the history of art many painters have also discovered the pleasure of working with clay. These have included several eminent artists from the past including Picasso, Vlaminck, Gauguin, Matisse, Authur Boyd and Jackson Pollock. Here are some paintings featuring pottery.
