I'm Back everyone! I should be on here weekly unless something comes up. This is one of a number of pieces I've acquired lately. This one is Uncle Sam. Made circa. 1947, this seemed to be a popular vase at the time, especially since reproductions are being made. How to unmask the repros? Measure the height of the new and old, and the new ones are 99% likely to be smaller than originals. Mine has been painted on the hat, and it's not cold painted. Unfortunately, the colors are wrong. It has an incised McCoy mark. I snagged it at a flea market for $7. Sorry if I was a little late to post this around the 4th of July.
