It sat above her stove for 20+ when I was growing up until she moved a little over a decade ago, so it was pretty dirty. I’ve been slowly and gently buffing out the old built-up dust from around the seeds. It is stamped with mccoy on the bottom, but I think it might be a popular fake. If anyone knows anything more about it, like age/whether it has lead in it, feel free to let me know lol. I plan on lead testing before making a permanent decision on where it should sit and how it should be handled. I wanted to use it for cookies, but I don’t know much about vintage ceramics and lead risks. Still, I’ve loved this thing my whole life and couldn’t be more thrilled to have my strawberry home with me! ?
