Most of the New McCoys are mass produced cheap by the new Owners Of the pottery Name
and molds. So they are not repos nor fakes they are just NEW I have seen
Newer Mt. Clemens Who Merged with then later bought McCoy marked Mt Clemens Pottery
Company Made In Japan!! Mostly The Old Pottery Companies were bought out over and
over from each owner until someone gets the rights to manufacture the stuff and Later
down the Line has the stuff cheaply made In Japan or China then the USA gets flooded
with this Legal Crap in unethical ways via dealers who cheat and Lie to sell it as
Old and Original. Lets face It almost everything old becomes new again with
era's designs coming back in style there is a market for New Production which
was supposed to be sold as New at affordable prices for people who couldn't
buy old stuff not made to look old to try and fool the public. then you do have
those who will take a piece make a mold and counterfeit it either way the buyer
should learn all they can on a Old product before they buy anything they are not
sure of. Most new guides will remove pictures of items of less value and
popularity to make way for other discovered pieces that may be worth more and
become popular.. As an example I have a swan Jim had gotten talked into buying a A
blue swan we didn't really like that much A McCoy when he bought several Pottery
pieces But I couldn't find it in my books I knew it was authentic by the marks
and the color but as I was closing the book my Funky Blue swan was on the cover
sitting partially hidden in a Jardiniere and I found a small blurb on it in the
introduction or cover explaination..about the pieces show there. There may be other
pieces out there not documented because the book writers are collectors and may
not have them or ever seen them we just may never really know until we find
more documentation on the artists and stuff that was limited in production.. Patti
