We purchased this Shawnee combination cookie jar/bank at an Indiana estate sale and it is truly a treasure to add to a collection! Bottom is marked: Patented, Winnie, Shawnee, USA, 61. She is in excellent condition – unbelievable – no nibbles at the coin slot (I don’t believe the bank portion was ever used). There is some tape/blue residue on the underneath part of the lid that I would surmise was taped to cover the 3 production holes (so cookies would stay fresh)...

I THOUGHT ABOUT "PARTING OUT" THIS SHAWNEE COOKIE JAR/BANK -- THIS IS A WINNIE TOP WITH A SMILEY BOTTOM! THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO FIND ITEMS, THEY FIT TOGETHER WELL, SO I'M SELLING THEM TOGETHER -- PERHAPS YOU NEED A TOP OR A BOTTOM AND CAN RESELL THE OTHER PIECE -- OR JUST ENJOY AS IS! COLORS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND BOTH PIECES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE...
