3 miniature pieces of vintage old pottery. These pieces are all between 4 and 4.25 inches tall. The little moonshine jug is marked USA on the bottom and has a primitive look to it. It is in very good condition, no cracks and no chips. The 2 handle vase has small chip on the top rim and on the foot, no cracks. The ewer or pitcher has no chips and no cracks. All three of these pieces have age glaze crazing. They are action pieces so I have no idea of the age, but they look old...

This is a pretty little vintage dutch or Holland shoe planter made by McCoy Pottery Company in the 1940s. It measures 7.25 inches long. The applied pink rose has the tip missing on the one leaf, and there is one small chip on the inside of the rim that you can't see from the outside, other than that it is in good condition.
This is a wonderful old India elephant planter with asian lady sitting on his head. It is in shades of pink and green on creamy white pottery. I found this in a book a while back and it is either, McCoy, Hull or Shawnee, but I can't remember which. It measures 5 inches high and 6 inches long. It does have a repair on the trunk as per the picture, the rest is in very good condition. It is an auction piece so I am not certain of the age, but think it is from the between 1930 and 1940.
This is a wonderful 1972 vintage pitcher, ewer or vase by McCoy Pottery Company in a retro crazy daisy pattern with a black stain art glaze finish. This is 8.75 inches tall and 4.5 inches across the wides middle section. This piece is marked McCoy USA 619. It is in very good condition, no chips, no cracks and no crazing that I can see. This would look wonderful with a floral arrangement in it.
This is a early Nelson McCoy pottery planter with the NM USA mark. It is a console planter that would work great for bonsai plants. It measures 2 inches high and 7.75 by 5.5 inches across. This piece is old, circa 1940s, and has a bit of lime on the inside from use, it has slight age glaze crazing, and 2 very tiny nicks on the edge and just a really cool old shabby chic look. This is a great vintage early piece of McCoy.

It measures 4.5 inches tall and 7.25 inches long. It is unmarked but looks very much like, McCoy, Hull or Shawnee. It is in very good condition, no cracks, no chips and just the tiniest amount of age glaze crazing.
I was told that this is a piece of very old McCoy pottery, but I am not sure of the maker, it could be Hull or even Roseville just looking at the thickness and design of the piece. It is an unmarked auction piece. It has semi-opaque art glaze over a leaf and ribbed design. It measures 4.25 inches tall and 3.5 inches across the top rim. It has a hairline crack in the side that you can see in the picture. Still for the collector of old pottery this is a great heavy lovely item.
This is a really pretty avocado or olive green planter. The color is very much like McCoy, but it is unmarked. It has ribbing around the side and would make a great decorator piece for a floral arrangement in a retro styled home. It measures 5.75 inches high and 4 and 7/8 inches across the top rim. It has small chip on the side of the top rim, and a small amount of age glaze crazing typical of vintage pieces.
Adorable brown bear cub and tree stump planter or vase. This piece appears quite old and is unmarked, however, I have seen the same piece listed as American Bisque, McCoy, Shawnee and Royal Copley, so I am not sure of the maker. It measures 5.5 inches tall and 6 inches wide. It has no cracks, but has some rub to the glaze along the back edge and most raised points. Still very cute and would make a great addition to a rustic setting.
