WE FOUND THIS CUTE OLD COOKIE JAR AT AN ESTATE SALE. IT IS MARKED DUNCAN ENTERPRISES INC 1978 ON BOTH THE LID AND THE BOTTOM. BOTTOM ALSO SIGNED COLEEN. DID A LITTLE RESEARCH AND FOUND OUT IT IS DUNCAN ENTERPRISES ART POTTERY CO. OF FRESNO CALIF. IT WAS STARTED BY MARY ERMA DUNCAN IN THE EARLY 1900'S. SHE WAS A WELL KNOW CHINA PAINTER. SHE SWITCHED OVER TO CERAMICS AND CREATED A LOT OF THE PAINTS. THEY NAMED THE COMPANY DUNCAN CERAMIC PRODUCTS IN 1946 AND MOVED THE BUSINESS TO FRESNO IN 1946 AND CHANGED THE NAME TO DUNCAN ENTERPRISES. THEY ARE STILL IN BUSINESS, AND THE CEO IS HER GRANDSON LARRY DUNCAN. I THANK ANOTHER SELLER IN EBAY FOR THIS INFO. THIS IS A BEAUTIFULLY PAINTED PIECE, AND WOULD MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY COOKIE JAR OR CALIFORNIA POTTERY COLLECTION. IT HAS A SMALL CHIP ON THE BOTTOM, BUT STILL A VERY COLLECTIBLE OLD PIECE.
