I believe the "Dough Boy" name stuck in my mind because I had seen a soldier jar, in the style of the
"Brownie" shown below identified as a "Doughboy." These round-bottomed jars with matte surfaces are still a point of contention with jar collectors. For years it was thought these jars were RRP Co. like the Oscars. New information, however, suggests they are American Bisque. The debate roars on!
|Brownie Cookie Jar - RRP Co.? or American Bisque?|
The most recent news is that last week I acquired a new (old) jar! I rarely buy more jars these days, and, it is not something I look for, but when an adorable and mint American Bisque Bear is sitting on the shelf at the Salvation Army I take notice! He was marked $34.99. Sort of high for a "thrift score" but he was in great condition, super cute, and, my cut-off is $35. He came home with me, I cleaned him up, scooted some of the existing jars to the right, scooted some others to the left, placed him in there and my husband never even noticed.
