Baker & Taylor A comprehensive encyclopedia of cookie jars offers a retrospective of this popular form of folk art with thousands of plates depicting a wide variety of jars and provides helpful identification tips and up-to-date values for collectors.
Collector Books Collectors everywhere know that cookie jars, both old and new, are among the hottest items sought after today and are bringing top dollar at antique shops, flea markets, and on eBay. With this in mind and due to the tremendous success of their three-volume series, Collector's Encyclopedia of Cookie Jars, Fred and Joyce Roerig were prompted to produce The Ultimate Collector's Encyclopedia of Cookie Jars. This book is an overview of their first three volumes, now out of print, with exciting new finds and additions. As age does not determine collectibility, some current jars have been added. This information enhances that of the tried and true jars of old. More than 1,200 photographs are included in this deluxe volume. Companies featured include Brayton Laguna, Brush-McCoy, Disney, Metlox, Shawnee, Treasure Craft, McCoy, Twin Winton, and many more. Informative text, current values, color photographs, and a handy index make this a great buy for cookie jar collectors everywhere.
