cookie jarThe origin of cookie jars began in Britain. First known as biscuit jars, their first use began at the end of the 18th century. These early cookie jars usually found in grocery stores were usually made of glass with metal lids. The more early types were cylinder shapes with floral or leaf painted decoration. It wasn’t until 1930 that stoneware became the predominant material for American cookie jars.

The first ceramic cookie jar was made at the Brush Pottery Company in Zanesville, Ohio. This green jar with the name “Cookies” on the front, started a trend in which the words “Brush U.S.A.” were marked on all of their jars. Since then (the 1930s), a variety of cookies were produced in different shapes and representing different intellectual characters. The most prominent period of cookie jar production was between 1940 and 1970.
