One rare find is this limited edition Britto Mickey Mouse cookie jar. It was designed by world renowned
pop artist Romero Britto; and features his signature bold patterns and vibrant colors.
It’s fun, upbeat and adorable. Mickey Mouse wears a happy and optimistic expression on his face which mirrors the optimism in the vibrant colors.
It’s amazing how the many details, colors and patterns in this conversation piece blended so well. Paired elements on the left and right sides have different colors and patterns. Mickey’s gloves are white on one hand and yellow on the other. The patterns, too, are different. Look at his ears, they’re not the same pattern and color, yet they match.
The top back portion of the head with the ears forms the lid. If you own this I doubt you’d use it as a cookie jar. If I had it I’d display it on a cabinet or shelf with glass. It’s more expensive than most kitchen appliances; you’d want to protect it from falling and breaking.
It’s hand-painted in colorful dolomite. Size is approximately 11-1/2 inches x 9 inches x 11 inches.
Only 2,000 pieces of this item is made worldwide. Each piece is hand-numbered and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. Truly a collectible item.
But if you can’t get your hands on one of these rare pieces there are other beautiful and uniquely crafted Mickey Mouse jars for cookies. Some are both functional and decorative. They are great gift options for a Mickey Mouse fan and for a collector even if they are not rare or vintage items.
In a hurry?
My sister has several Mickey Mouse cookie jars sitting snugly on her display cabinet. They are so charming. If I had them, I, too, won’t mind if they serve no other purpose other than to brighten up my dining area or kitchen counter.
