I Had One Before Anthropologie!

Earlier this month I went to http://www.anthropologie.com/ to look around for some inspiration and this little wise guy was looking at me I did a double take and oh yeah thats my owl! Well sort of, its like the one I have.

And this is mine, an Owl cookie jar from the Shawnee Pottery from the 40's and 50's a company from Zanesville, Ohio. the company closed in 1961 so someone somewhere got the mold or recreated it!

Theirs looks more green were mine is gray.

They even made salt and pepper shakers and these can be found in a lot of antique shops.

I collect Shawnee Pottery and have several cookie jars, pitchers, tea pots, vases, planters, and salt & pepper shakers.

  4. What's old is new again - love your story! Your cookie jar and shakers are just adorable. Evidently Anthropologie agrees!

  5. I appreciate your vintage one! It's a little sad that "they" are making repo's of so many vintage goodies.

  6. Those are exquisite! What a wonderful collection. And it's always nice to have your good taste validated by a big style-maker like Anthropologie.

  7. Stopping by to let you know I gave you some awesome awards on my blog so stop by and check them out when you have a chance :)
