The listing, Vintage "Old King Cole" Cookie Jar JAPAN has ended.

Up for bids is a Vintage "Old King Cole" Cookie Jar marked JAPAN on the bottom

The piece is 12 1/4" tall 7 and Wide and 5 1/2 Deep.and in great condition for it's age except for a 1/4" hairline crack across 3 corners on the top of the base which you can't see if it closed. I tried to capture them in pictures the best I could. There's also a chip UNDERNEATH but does Not go through the piece at all and has no hairlines coming from it. It also has very light age crazing, so some of the pictures are just because I was trying to capture it.

It evidently had red painted circles on the hat because there are still small amounts of painted 1/2 circles. The white circle on top of the hat is paper which was a sticker from the estate sale I got it from.

Research shows This cookie jar is featured in "The Complete Cookie Jar Book" 4th Edition by Mike Schneider page 230 and also The complete Cookie Jar Book by Mike Schneider Copy right 2001. Page:231-15-The wonderful World of Cookie Jars by Mark & Ellen supnick: page :170 I found it on a site for $325.00 but I know the actual value because I can't find the books mentioned..

Paypal I also accept CC=concealed cash and USPS Postal Money Orders also Postage stamps in the amount of the shipping if you already have them on hand.

Mailouts on Mondays and Fridays. Shipping implies USA ONLY, Not Canada or Anyone else unless you want to pay the extra for it.

The price is for the Priorirty Flat Rate box, when I find a plain box I'll get the shipping for it instead.IF it's cheaper, please know I Alway make sure theres enogh packing material for a safe trip. Insurance is $1.80 more

FYI, if you wrap the priority box in brown craft paper to mail and take to post office they can tell you how much the shipping will be. If its cheaer this way, then ship this way, if not, then remove the paper and ship in the flat rate priority. Hope this helps.

thanks, I was actually going to ask them IF I shipped in a box "this size" (priority) but not priority, how much would it cost. if the weight and packing I use will be a few cents off, I'm shipping priority. thanks for the help. fanning if not already.

well when you go to PP you go to "Request money" at the top and fill in the blanks OR click the blue "Create an invoice" for more info.
hope this helps. And I hope you wanted to know for this item,lol

Apr 7th, 2012 at 5:41:53 AM PDT by
thanks, are you wanting an item to be featured? if so you have to go to the bottom of a listia page and go to "contact us" then go to the last subject on the list "support ticket" and the click the blue "none" go to I'm a seller and then click the second thing on the list is " I want my item featured".

Thats what I did 4 days ago on one but it sold at the GIN but my other I did 1 day ago and it still isn't done ... I never ask but this I did do :( Thanks so much
Apr 7th, 2012 at 10:22:34 AM PDT by
we what happens is, (from a dear listian who told me about how to Feature items) IF it's too dark or sideway angeled, or outta focus...stuff like that sometimes won't get featured. she said it's best to take pictures in the bathroom because of the lighting in some of them. I had one that didn't feature and I kept trying and it did a few days later and a few I removed the pictures before bids were placed and RE-DID the pictures for better lighting and it worked. hope this helps.

Love this auction!! I'm new but am learning a lot quicker than I thought my middle age brain would allow! As for the cookie jar#dilemna, somehow I wound up with 5 and don't buy many cookies either! So 1 is for dog treats,1 for the cat and 1 for the soup labels and boxtops for ed. the others are for the actual cookies! I'm not a very good photographer but what helped me take better pics is a3 sided backdrop i made out of posterboard and a lazy susan I got at a yard sale and spray painted black.Sometimes I drape a white sheet over the whole thing for effect. For some things I really want to set off I got a piece of black velvet I cut off of a thrift store dress. I was suprised at how much of a difference it makes for some things. Happy auctioning and good luck! Hope these hints help somebody as much as they did me!

thanks I appreciate it, I usually take pictures with my peach colored wall in the background,lol. I've been storing it in the cabnet forever after purchasing at an estate sale.
Apr 7th, 2012 at 3:14:35 PM PDT by
Isn't peach one of those subliminal colors that will cause a person to wish to buy what ever is in front of it?ha-ha
Apr 7th, 2012 at 6:33:38 PM PDT by
NOPE, cause I'm as Stingy as you know what,lol

Apr 8th, 2012 at 8:02:35 PM PDT by
not being mean but the last time I checked a site a newbie gave, it turns out she was a listian who was made because I gave her neg feedback for Trying to scam me. she made a new listing for herself and gave me a virus for checking the site. found out it was her and now she's gone,lol

I just made a batch of chocolate chips, and they have no home to go to.... This would be an attractive addition to my kitchen, and would give the "homeless" cookies a place to go. They would definitely be better off than their current state, which is a plastic container (that used to hold markers) covered with ghetto wrap. I will be watching and bidding. Thanks for the neat auction. (:
Apr 10th, 2012 at 8:26:34 PM PDT by
FANTASITC,lol. Bid and get your babies (cookies) a home even though I'm Positive they'll get a New one soon (stomach),lol
