McCoy Slant Top Tee Pee Collector Cookie Jar

~~RARE JAR ALERT~~McCoy Slant Top Tee Pee Collector Cookie Jar. While both this jar and the straight cut top McCoy Tee Pee jars are both difficult to find, this one is by far the more difficult of the two to encounter. As with most of the cold-painted jars, this jar while it retains most of the important areas’ paint, it does have some paint loss as demonstrated in the photos. Nice overall condition, no chips, no hairlines or cracks. Light crazing on the jar. Measurements are approximately 11 1/2 inches tall buy approximately 8 inches wide at the widest point of the base. Solid jar, signed on the underside “McCoy USA 137”. The lid and base are “cut” at an angle with an interlocking dimple to keep the lid from sliding off the jar, or so they thought.
Unique improvement over the straight cut top jars or so McCoy thought, making this jar, one of the “holy grails” of collecting both McCoy jars and jars in general! The tops on these jars never fit properly and being at an angle had a tendency to slide off when one attempted to replace the lid resulting in owning half a jar. The lids rarely sat properly on the base resulting in a look that the lid was sliding off as seen in the photos here. This flawed design moved McCoy toward finishing the production of this style with the straight cut top making both the slant top as well as the straight cut “rare” in their own numbers of production respectively. (The yellow “zig zag” is not quite that orange in color as it shows up in the photos, its more of a yellow. A very difficult to find jar in any condition, however, you’ll be pleased to own this jar! The majority of the color on this jar is applied as “cold paint”, after the jar was fired in the kiln. There may be a few flakes here and there missing which is not uncommon for cold painted jars as this one is. Miraculously, the majority of the cold paint has survived which on many of these jars, they have little or no paint.
