Lagardo Tackett Two Sided Cookie Jar with Faces and Rattan Handle


This amusing ceramic cookie jar designed by Lagardo Tackett has an opening on each side. The lids of the two openings are made of wood and painted with clownish, smiling faces. Their red-tipped pink noses form their handles. The tall, woven rattan handle attaches to knoblike projections on the sides. Please note: The handle has a repair where it attaches on one side. The repaired handle holds the jar as is, but we do not recommend using it as we cannot guarantee that it will hold up over time or with weight in the jar. The body of the cookie jar is about 7.5" high, and the height with the handle is 13.25"
