Cookie Jars From The Old Days

History of cookie jars

Cookie jars date back as far as the late 1920's and early 1930's and first appeared in Ohio. They were used to hold biscuits in England and cookies and sometimes where used for other items like money, dog treats or candy.

Collectible Cookie Jars

Collectible cookie jars where first on the scene in the U.S. in the early 1930s, and can be made in lots of different materials like glass, plastic, metal and ceramic. Ceramic being the most popular of course.

      I have a vintage cookie jar, it is pig, that belonged to my grandmother. I don't know if it is worth anything or not. Never checked but I like looking at others.
