Maker Unknown, Indian Woman Collector Cookie Jar. No one has ever stepped up to the plate to claim fame for making this interesting and one of a kind jar. In most books that list this particular jar, they have it listed in the Black Americana section. So, I guess there is question as to actual ethnic background it was to represent. From the dress and slightly reddish colored dark skin tones, I would tend to agree that it was intended to be an Indian woman. She doesn’t have any chips or cracks, just a lot of lighter crazing and one dark craze line that is straight and about an inch long. It’s a smooth area to the touch, so, I would not classify it as a crack but just a darkened craze line in the glaze. This happens from dirt, cookie grease, etc, getting into these craze lines. It will not show up in a photo its so fine. There is some minor paint loss on the jar since it is cold-painted. The zig zag line going about the dress near the bottom is nearly 100% intact and there are a couple of missing paints areas on the face and hair as seen in the photos. This is to be expected with a vintage jar of this age and being cold-painted. She’s a very interesting jar and not much is known about her, but she is also a very difficult to find jar esp in this condition with the paint intact. Some books spike in value at between $250 – $400. She’s still an attractive and interesting jar just the same in her right.  Someone thought so or she wouldn’t be listed in the books.
