It’s back to the Dixieland Flea Market to have a look at a cookie jar that we broke down and bought. Pinocchio just captured our hearts! You can see the jars that got away (for now) by checking out this earlier post filled with cookie jars aplenty.
But let’s have a look at our beautiful cookie jar by Treasure Craft featuring Pinocchio:
Just look at that smile!
From the sides
From the back
This cookie jar is unique in that the receptacle for holding the cookies is separate from the ceramic figure. Instead of having a head that lifts off to access the contents, there is a glass jar that can be removed and passed around:
This makes it easier to clean and less likely to damage the main figure. Cleo the fish is perched up top to form the handle for the lid, but she is hard to grasp hold of, so we lift the whole lid with two hands.
Shouldn’t Cleo be inside the bowl?
The effect here is to have Cleo floating on top of the water at the top of her fish bowl. Clever!
This detachable feature is what sold us on this particular cookie jar. It’s such a unique idea!
It’s hard to see, but the words ‘Disney’ and ‘Treasure Craft’ are carved into the base of the main figure. The bowl would have had a sticker with another name on it, but ours has been washed away.
We won’t be using Pinocchio for cookies as we find that they go stale if left in such a vessel, so it has become our candy jar instead. I don’t think anyone will complain.
