MONMOUTH "COOKIE JUG" COOKIE JAR

MONMOUTH "COOKIE JUG" COOKIE JAR. This is an excellent example of a Monmouth Pottery "COOKIE JUG" cookie jar. This cookie jug has the look of the old whiskey jugs. The bottom portion of the jug is a light oatmeal color with the words "Cookie Jug" written across it in script. The top or lid of the jug is a dark brown with a finger handle and cork. The outside of the bottom is incised with a maple leaf and Monmouth Ill USA. I have been told that this is one of the older pieces because it is an oatmeal color rather than the yellow-beige and the script on the jug is black not brown. Since I'm not that familiar with Monmouth Pottery, I don't know.
