Note: Everything "Shawnee" is now considered a collectible. Cookie jars are especially popular. Among the most sought after are the Smiley & Winnie pigs, the Muggsy dog, Puss n' Boots and the Dutch Jack & Jill. Smiley, in all of his variations, is one of the most sought after pieces for cookie jar collectors-not just the Shawnee enthusiasts.
