This came from my Grandmothers house in a rural central Georgia small town. Curious if anyone has any idea of its origins or meaning of the marking. There are no makers marks on the bottom or anywhere. It does seem to be made from a mold as I can see a mold line under the handle. I don't think it is affiliated with Nazi swasticka because this one is going the opposite direction. Anybody got a clue?
McCoy is very collectible, but the problem with older pieces is that they weren't marked. Many don't know they are McCoy. If it had been marked, you wouldn't even have posted your question! It's a beautiful piece.
Iím really happy to have found your posting. I have 4 large mugs that match your pitcher, except they are dark chocolate brown. I have always thought they looked like beer mugs. Mine also came from my grandmother. They had no markings, so I had no idea who made them. They have always meant a lot to me because they are the only thing I have that belonged to my Grandmother. Thanks to your posting, I now know that they are the real McCoy. Ha!
There are 2 different symbols that are easy to confuse: one faces left, the other faces right. They are both ancient symbols used by mankind throughout our history - not just by Hitler, though Americans and Europeans tense up when they see either of them.
