My uncle has several pieces of McCoy in his late wife's family collection. We have identified several pieces, but I am completely stumped on (2) vases(?) Can you help? We just want to know if they are real McCoy, and if they are worth anything. (Color may be off, my aunt was a heavy smoker) ?

Answer:

This is a very nice older vase by McCoy in the early 1940's. Some folks see an Owl in the design although I don't think catalog pages refer to it as such. Sanfords book values it at $40.00-50.00 which is probably pretty accurate today. This goes with the one I mentioned the owl in.
