Up for sale is a very rare Monkey cookie jar
It was manufactured by Robinson Ransbottom Pottery company in Roseville,Ohio
This piece of memorabilia was given to a family member in the late50's / early 60's. It was handed it down to me and I wrapped it in cloth and put it high in my cupboard and forgot about it.
During a recent cleaning I found it again and realized that someone would appreciate it more than I.
There are no spidering,chips,cracks or any blemishes on this item. As it was close to 60 years ago .
Insurance would be advisable for this item.
I have noticed on different sites that several Jocko's are shown with vibrant rosey red cheeks and bright red lips. Kind of like Jocko in drag. ...or Uncle Miltie. Perhaps it was a different production run or someone going goofy with the makeup applications ...regardless, this is an original piece, not a reproduction, with the colors as they were, when it was put it the kiln, I would think...no fading, stored in the dark away from direct light for five decades.
Please ask all questions prior to purchase.
Due to the fragile nature of this item it will have to be packed carefully and this is the reason for the higher then usual shipping and handling charges.
