is a wonderful McCoy cookie jar....trash or garbage can. This piece is in mint condition...no chips, cracks and not even any scratches from use. (t are a few pin prick glaze misses typical to this type of pottery) The base measures 7 1/8" high with a base diameter of 5 3/4"....total height with lid on is 9 1/4" high. The color is gray with light speckles in the glaze to add a bit to the plain finish. The underside is marked 356 USA.
