American Bisque: Original, Authentic, NOT A REPRODUCTION! One of the “holy grails” of cookie jar collecting! The original ABC (American Bisque Co) Popeye the Sailor bust cookie jar C mid 50’s! This guy is for real! There are no chips, no cracks, no damage of any kind. There is some crazing & some dark craze lines from cookie grease, to be expected from age & use. This jar was definitely used but not abused. On his left side, even with the pipe, (right side in photo(s), there is a factory blemish showing as a circular line in the pink cheek. This area is glazed over so that we know it came this way from the manufacturer & is forgivable. Its not very noticeable since its in the pink area of his cheek. Look at the photos carefully; you can tell that he’s for real. The base of the collar is not elevated to make up for the shrinkage as found in the reproductions. Everything about this jar says that he’s authentic. The pipe, however, may be a replacement. The original price tag is still on the collar from what the former collector paid for this great jar: $685.00! Please click on the thumbnails or use the photo slide show to enjoy a better view of this highly collectable, “holy grail” of cookie jars, then, click the “add to cart” button!
