Complete Aunt Jemima Cookie Jar Review and Price Guide
The Famous McCoy Aunt Jemima Cookie Jar:
The McCoy cookie jars are typically well loved and very hard to find in new condition.
The jar is about a foot tall. It was made between 1944 and 1947.
We have read but not confirmed that over 100,000 of these cookie jars were produced. Literally, these are the only widespread production of Aunt Jemima cookie jars ever made. However, because they were not originally collectors items, and because many were discarded after being considered derogatory, not that many remain. Even fewer are in good condition. Since early production techniques in the 1940s were not as polished as they are today, real McCoy cookie jars tend to suffer from paint chips. Newer knock-offs will not have this problem. Ironically, then, McCoy presents a situation where a nicer looking jar may not be as valuable as one with paint wear - because it is a newer reproduction instead of an original. warning about McCoy replica jars. There is background information about the .
In full glory the figure is wearing a white dress with a red cap. There is red sash trim. Outlined in black is the word "Cookies" at the base of the dress.
Collectible Lettering Variation
The picture above shows the word "Cookies" imprinted on the jar.
There is an earlier version of the McCoy cookie jar made with the text: "Dem Cookies shor am good".
The earlier version was replace with the cookies version to be less offensive. For collectors, it presents two variations to find.
Review: Every Aunt Jemima cookie jar collector is expected to have at least one McCoy in their collection. It's a basic staple. Don't get too hung-up on condition because virtually all the McCoy cookie jars are in good to poor condition. If you see a McCoy in pristine shape assume it is a reproduction, regardless of what anyone says about it. If the jar is in great shape and less than $100 it is a reproduction.
Mammy with Cauliflowers
Another McCoy cookie jar, called Mammy with Cauliflowers, is very rare.
The jar was made in 1939. It depicts a Mammy / Aunt Jemima holding a bushel of green and yellow cauliflowers.
The initial picture seems to be off in color where the green appears blue - and the seller referred to the color being green. (We were recently reading an article that Captain Kirk's uniform in Star Trek was green, but often appeared yellow on screen due to the way colors work. Who knew?) Here is another picture of a McCoy Cauliflower in poorer condition, but better reflecting the original green color:
Here is the backside of the cookie jar.
Showing the "McCoy" imprint on the bottom of the jar.
Review: Any Cauliflower piece on the market is likely to not be on the market for long - regardless of its condition.
Value and pricing: $500 to $1000 in nice condition. That is a wide range, but McCoy Mammy Cauliflower cookie jars are hard to find. Even rarer is finding one in decent condition.

Review: For collectors of Aunt Jemima and Black Americana products, this lightweight plastic cookie jar is unusual. It is the type of collectible someone could toss not realizing it is valuable. Secure it at least behind glass so it will not get damaged.
Value and pricing: F&F Mold & Die Works Aunt Jemima cookie jar is commonly seen (when it is seen) at around $200 - $400 in a best condition. Less if the condition is degraded or poor.

Oatmeal Fruit Cookie Mix in a jar
Very rare. Made by Weller in the mid-1930s, this Black Americana jar features a mammy holding a watermelong.
She is dressed in a white and light blue striped dress with matching head wrap.
The jar is about eleven and one-quarter inches high.
The bottom of the jar may be imprinted "Weller Pottery Since 1872".
A look at the back of the jar.
Weller Pottery was based on Fultonham, Ohio. At one time in the early 1900s Weller was the largest pottery producer in the US. However, the company went out of business in 1948.
Review: No one today would dare produce any product featuring a black woman holding a watermelon. A bit surprising for some to see today, that also helps drive up the value. Except to have for its rarity, the jar itself is ugly, lacking detail, and not worth displaying.
Value and pricing: Expect to see $700 - $1000 for jars in good condition. These Wellers are rare and in high demand.
