What you should know about McCoy pottery

By: sturat

McCoy pottery is one of the most important and known pottery makers in the US; it was established at the beginning of the 20th century and changed its name to McCoy – Brush in 1925. McCoy items are considered to be among the most valuable collectibles one can have; in some cases, the prices of the McCoy items reach extremely high prices at auctions or sale for high prices in retail and antique shops.

The trademark of the McCoy Pottery is recognised all over the world; due to the high appreciation of its quality though, it has been copied and abused several times. A few years ago the McCoy mark was used on reproductions of the original items and especially the jars. Many inexpensive replicas hit the markets, causing a serious financial damage to the company, which started a long legal fight so as to protect its name and ceramics. The McCoy jars were introduced in 1930 and since then they have been the only figural jars ever available in the markets. Today though, the McCoy pottery company is not in business anymore, a fact that makes the original pottery even more important and unique.

If you are among those who want to collect pottery items you can find a vast variety of them available in several shops and antique collections; there are also many shops online that sell the authentic McCoy collectibles. The authentic ones come with verification and mark of authenticity, as all the items got a unique number when manufactured. There are also many resources for the McCoy products, including several associations and journals.

If you are one of the collectors of vintage and unique items, whether it is vintage jewellery or pottery, you should always try to educate yourself on the best sources of original products, as there are many scams today, especially online.
