Collecting: McCoy Pottery

I love collecting McCoy Pottery, but I’m picky about the pieces I collect so the collection is growing slowly.  I’m trying to collect pieces that are only green, turquoise, pink or white.  I want my collection to eventually have some visual punch, like Martha Stewart’s amazing collection see it here.

Complicating my collecting is the fact that I never purchase online.  I like what I buy to have been found in my city, or on a trip.  I’m a sucker for sentiment!  Happily, I found a new piece at a local antique shop just a few days ago.  Here are a couple pics of some of my collection:

The low turquoise dish isn’t McCoy, but I love it still


This one is the only one actually home to a plant.


Hello new addition!

The colour combo of my newest planter reminds me of a beautiful pale aqua and moss green kitchen kitchen featured recently on from Apartment Therapy here.

    I think you're pretty wise not to buy online: I find, it can be so hard to judge colors. Plus, by hunting locally, you'll remember the circumstances behind every piece!

    I too love McCoy pottery! I especially like the older pieces with simple lines and form. I have three collections: green, aqua, and white, and love amassing them together for a bold impact. Thanks for sharing your collection!
