Robinson Ransbottom aka RRPCO Old King Cole or Ole King Cole Collector Cookie Jar. While this jar has no chips, cracks, or, hairlines, the previous owner of this jar tells me that they have had it professionally restored that there was some minor damage, a small spot. I cannot see where the repair is for sure, but have taken a photo of the area I believe is where it is up near the rim. There is no visible damage and the spot is not conspicuous. If I didn’t tell you that the jar had been restored, you would never know. I am offering this at a reduced price based on this but also offering the jar since I felt it was a stunning example of this fine old jar. The colors are superb and vivid. This is really a beautiful well made piece and one certainly one can be to be proud to own. I would not have bought it to offer you if I didn’t believe this myself! It’s so nice to see that someone took interest to preserve this wonderful piece of Americana now considered to be an art form.
Marked on the bottom “RRPCO Roseville Oh”. Minimal crazing and just a great jar all the way around. You can be the next care-taker of this great jar!!
