In The Park Collectibles has an auction running right now that has this great vintage 1940's-1950's porcelain cookie jar made by Gibbs-Conner of Cleveland, Ohio. It features the famous "Brooklyn Bum", and measures 13" tall.
Gibbs-Conner was a competitor to Stanford Pottery, but closed their doors in the late 1950's. Sports based porcelain figurines were not their main market; although they did produce for a sale porcelain bank of Cleveland Indian's mascot Chief Wahoo. I believe this Dodgers cookie jar is one of just a handful of prototypes that they made, but never got around to mass producing. As evidenced by its high initial asking price ($1,000.00), it is a very scarce collectible.
