Rated 5 out of 5┬áby jennyhen Cute and retro
I got this cookie jar as a gift and love it so much! As a lover of all things owl, this is such a unique piece with a vintage feel. The yellow, green and black details are muted and the glaze has a slightly crackle finish. The paint on mine is a little sloppy but gives it more of a hand painted look. My only drawbacks would be that the cover is slightly awkward and I worry that it could get broken if you have little kids and actually use this for a cookie jar. Also there is no seal between the jar and lid so its contents would go stale quickly. I love it in my kitchen, but it is more of a decorative piece.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby desipanchhi Poor paint job
While this owl is short and stout and therefore cute to look at, the paint, especially around his eyes, is not done well. For that reason I exchanged him for another cookie jar that had better paint work done on it. This cookie jar also does not have any mechanism for keeping foods fresh, such as with an airtight rubber ring around the mouth of the jar and the lid.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Chase Very cute, but be mindful of the color
This cookie jar is pleasing in every way, but the jar I received is not white and green, as the photo at the website suggests. What looks white in the photo is a very, very pale bluish-gray. Still pretty, but if you want to coordinate this with other solid white objects, it's not an exact match. I'm uploading a photograph, where you can see the color a bit better. If you don't mind a very pale gray piece, this is cute as can be and seems quite well made.
