MOST DEFINITELY A VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND JAR IS THIS INDIAN HEAD BUST OF CHIEF PONTIAC by McCoy POTTERY! This is an original jar, its NOT a reproduction! Usually this jar has lost all of is original cold paint and while some of it is missing on this jar, it still retains a good portion of the colors. Usually, the feathers are often broken off, too. Not this jar, no chips, no cracks, no hairlines! Just a heavy, clunky original McCoy jar modeled after Chief Pontiac as an adverting item. There is a bit of crazing visible particularly in the bottom of the jar where the cookie grease leached into the pottery. This is typical of an old, used jar. Helps add to the authenticity, too! Highly collectable and highly sought after! Great detail, great color, great condition! Would be a great “go with” if you buy the American Bisque Western Boots cookie jar! Nice jar, great detail & color, worthy of the beginner or the seasoned collector!
This jar comes with a handmade cleaning cloth, too, to help protect the finish on your fine, aging collectables like this fine jar. We make them ourselves with very soft hand woven materials and these will last and last for you not just for this jar but any fine item like this, china, porcelain silverware, almost anything! Nice thing right now in addition to a free cleaning cloth is … he’s on SALE! Holidays are coming and these jars make great gifts. We can ship them to the anticipated recipient for you & send the tracking information to you so you can follow its journey!

I know you’re looking forward to owning this little guy and the best part is that he doesn’t require anything but a little dusting once in a while … that’s what the soft cloth is for & to help protect the cold paint!
**COLD PAINT IS APPLIED AFTER THE JAR HAS BEEN FIRED IN THE KILN. WHILE THE COLORS STAY ON THE JAR, AFTER A TIME THEY DO WEAR OR WASH OFF IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL. THIS IS WHAT THE CLEANING CLOTH IS FOR TO HELP PRESERVE THE COLD PAINT!
