Metlox Bunny on Cabbage Figural Cookie Jar -- Vintage USA made Collector Item from the Metlox Nostalgia Animal Line

This is perhaps my favorite of the Metlox Cookie Jars. Metlox began designing the wonderful figures of winsome animals in the 1940's and produced them in their California factory. Their dinnerware, known as Poppytrail became popular, and they expanded into producing a line of figural cookie jars and others items. I understand these items were referred to as their Nostalgia Line. The factory ultimately closed in 1989, but collectors continue to treasure these delightful cookie jars.

This cookie jar is exceptional. An adorable Peter Rabbit style bunny, dressed in his little jacket and sporting an impish gleam in his eyes, sits atop a life sized head of cabbage. The cabbage is beautifully crafted with gently curved leaves and realistic veins. These were of course hand painted, and the authentic shading from light to darker green is especially well done on this jar. This I believe it is indicative of the older pieces, as opposed to some later ones where the entire head of cabbage is a uniform darker color.

The condition of this jar is exceptional. It was used ever-so-gently on "special occasions" and then carefully hand-washed and returned to the shelf, for display.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
