Cookie Jar Lids Site?

Any places that just sell just the old lids for cookie jars with missing lids? My mom just gave me an old cookie jar she grew up with and it doesn't have the lid? Thanks, Richie

Javaa this site may have a lid for you just type lids in the search and see if they have a match good luck

RE: Cookie Jar Lids Site?

Lids are often the first piece of a cookie jar to be broken, because the projections used as a handle are applied after the main piece is molded. Certain patterns were really P-willies. I remember the dog cookie jars at Nelson McCoy they were running when I was working there. The handle was the dog's tail. Argh.

We still have some local pottery outlets who have bins of lids for replacements. They're not marked to pattern or even maker, but if one has the patience to sift through hundreds of them, they can sometimes find the match, or at least one to make a useable cookie jar. Good luck. It would help you if you can identify the maker and pattern.
