I just purchased a vase with an ear of corn design that I am told is a J.W. McCoy Olympia piece. I don't know if you do evaluations or not, but I would LOVE to know an approximate value, or if you don't give evaluations perhaps a degree of rarity for this piece. ?

Answer:

This is J.W. Olympia but it's really hard to come up with a value now. I was at an auction in July where the Olympia went really cheap...of course that was an auction of over 500 pieces of McCoy. I paid 60.00 for mine about 15 years ago... It "should" be valued at 150.00-200 in my opinion, but the market does not bear it out now...It is not rare...but not easily found.
