[Mccoypottery-talk] Repros... (NOT CJ'S!)
Tue, 5 Jun 2001 08:27:15 -0400
I have seen quite a few pieces that I think were repros. I just don't buy
if I am in doubt. I would love to meet in the chat room. I work from 8-5
but other than that name and time and date. I'll try and be there!!

Now that we are on the subject of McCoy reproductions, I wanted to share
something with everyone. Maybe others know, but I certainly didn't... I
thought only the CJs were being reproduced.
About a month ago I met with Red Huston, a dealer in our area
(Arkansas/Missouri) who said he has been dealing in cookie jars for 35
years. He has hundreds in his shop and it was quite a sight to see! He
deals at the Annual National Cookie Jar Show and knows just about everyone
involved with McCoys. Anyway, he told me to be on the lookout for repros
in other pieces besides cookie jars. I have only seen one basket piece
redone (which I bought cheaply because I wasn't sure). He then showed me a
reproduction of the smaller hand tray shown on page 112 of Sanford's. I
couldn't believe it - it looked exactly the same and in the beautiful aqua
glaze. I have this piece in yellow and could compare: His repro was
slightly smaller, definitely lighter, WAS MARKED NM as the original, but
the interior of the underside was not glazed and just solid bisque (the
interior of mine is entirely glazed). Had I not been told and ran into
this piece somewhere else, I would have assumed it wa!
s the real McCoy - a VERY good copy.
Has anyone else ran into repros on planters, vases, etc., other than cookie
jars? I'm sure we could all benefit from hearing about them! Incidently,
if anyone would like to name a date/time for us to start meeting in the
McCoy chat room, I would love to join in!!!
Thanks - Kelly
