The History of the Cookie Jar

Cookie Jar BooksCookie jars are so beloved today that it’s hard to imagine a time when they didn’t exist. However, before the 18th century there was no such thing. If a freshly made item was to be stored, it wouldn’t last more than a day, so there was really no need. Cookies would be wrapped in cloth or covered with a bowl. And with many snitches coming through the kitchen to grab a tasty morsel, there was sure to be nothing left by the end of the day. People baked fresh, and there were no preservatives. Hence, nothing to store or preserve.

That all changed in the 18th century when the British began making what they called biscuit tins. Their biscuits were the equivalent of a shortbread or tea cake and they needed somewhere to store them in the wealthier households for their 4:00 teas. The first cookie jars were actually jars with metal screw on lids, hence the name.

Cookie jars did not catch on in America until the Depression in late 1929. In the 1930s cookie jars were mostly made of stoneware. A company inCookie Jar Books Zaneville, Ohio, called the Brush Pottery Company changed the face of the cookie jar forever. They began making ceramic jars. The first one was green with the word cookie written across it. After that, cookie jars were made of ceramic and have been ever since.

Cookie jars have been popular to a certain degree ever since. They have been made in designs featuring dogs, cats, flowers, clowns, and just about every animal and theme that can be imagined. The more fanciful, the more collectors want the jars. Antique and vintage shops carry a varying array of jars from the past. Because these jars were actually used and passed down from grandmas to mother’s kitchen, many survived. It is one kitchen antique that can actually still be used in modern times.

Cookie Jar Books1987 was a big turning point for this collection item. Pop art legend Andy Warhol had amassed a collection of dozens from the tame to the wild. Upon his death, his collection was put on the auction block. It sold for over $200,000 and the cookie jar collecting craze was on its way.

The American Bisque Company in West Virginia and Nelson McCoy in Ohio were two of the leading producers of American jars. Their jars from the pre-1970s eras are the most rare and collectible. If you happen upon one, check the value in a collecting value book guide and see if it’s rare or valuable. They will be stamped with a specific maker’s mark on the bottom, so get to know those marks so you can spot a real one.

Sometimes in passing you will find a jar that just appeals to you for some reason. It won’t matter if it’s a valuable McCoy or just a no name ceramicCookie Jar Books piece. If you love it, add it to your collection. You will get years of joy from it and you can actually use it for cookies every day.

Cookie jars are a charming part of history that no one can resist. When starting or continuing a collection, look for jars that are in good shape and have no chips or nicks. Any marring of the paint or finish should be left as is as collectors pay top dollar for cookie jars in their original condition.
