    I was drawn to this piece the first time I seen it. Musta been the witches that drew me in ;) It took me forever to even find another one like it in order to even find out the story line behind this mysterious yet awesome jar. The scene on this 1966 Canister Cookie Jar has imagery from a Scottish poem called, 'Tam O' Shanter', which was written by Robert Burns in 1790. You can find this ghoulish poem here: http://www.robertburns.org.uk/Assets/Poems_Songs/tamoshanter.htm This image is a celebration in a tavern with drinking and great merriment. As the piece is rotated, a mounted horseman is in full gallop toward a wooden foot bridge. With a look of terror on his face the horseman is looking backward to see two flying witchs directly behind him with one holding his horse by the tail. No Cracks, but there is some small nicks in the glaze around the bottom base of this jar, and one on the top handle of the lid. There is also slight crazing to the lid due to its age but that is normal. With the lid this Jar is approx. 9" tall, and and 7" wide. This Canister Cookie Jar in present condition retails for about 95.00. I am offering it for only $70.00.
