Vintage kitchen witch"; cookie jar. Some call them a Poppet. According to legend, the presence of the kitchen witch will "protect your kitchen from fires, keep your bread from falling and scare away evil spirits." Not bad for a cookie jar! This Kitchen Witch is painted with yellow and green accents, with a black head scarf. Rosy cheeks and holes for her eyes. Her eyes made me think she may have been made by Metlox or Poppy trail. Her body is the light speckled oatmeal coloring they use on their items. Her eyes are done like their "Poppets" figurines also. No markings though. There is no cold paint on this jar, so your cookie jar is fade, flake and scratch resistant and is completely washable. She measures 12 1/2 inches Tall. She is unique, sweet and in perfect condition! Slight age crazing under glaze.
