There is NO such thing as an authentic Brush-McCoy Cookie Jar.
- The first Brush cookie jar, made in 1929, is pictured in The Complete Cookie Jar Book by Schneider.
- Ross and Don Winton designed many of the whimsical Brush cookie jars, the jars they designed have a W in the markings.
- Beware: Brush jars have been widely reproduced and it can be hard to tell reproductions from the originals.
- Original molds were sold and used later for reproductions. Brush Pottery closed its doors in 1982.
