Brush Pottery cookie jars bring smiles to collectors
By Larry LeMasters
The Brush Pottery Company was created in 1925 when the Brush-McCoy Pottery Company dissolved. The history of Brush Pottery Company, prior to the dissolution in 1925, is straightforward but faceted. George Brush worked for and trained in many American potteries, including J.B. Owens, Globe Stoneware, Clay Products Company of Crooksville, Ohio, and his own company—Brush Pottery—that burned down in 1908.
