Cookie Jars, Original or Repro

Delectable containers!

Below are two lovely cookie jars that caught my fancy and fit in with my fruit and vegetables collections.  The strawberry is made by McCoy and is the real deal.  It has an embossed number on the bottom.  The banana cookie jar is a reproduction of the orignal McCoy Banana  one.  You can tell it is a repro by the finish, which has faked crazing (crazing is small crack  lines in the glazing which occurs naturally over many years on some pottery).   I bought it knowing it was a repro because I liked it.  I photographed it with the glass apple for size comparison.

Here is a link to McCoy Pottery marks:
