Q: I own a Puss ’n Boots cookie jar, creamer and salt and pepper shaker set that belonged to my mother. What is the value of the set?
A: Your Puss ’n Boots pieces were made by Shawnee Pottery, which was in business in Zanesville, Ohio, from 1937 to 1961. It made cookie jars, dinnerware, flowerpots, lamps, planters, vases and novelty ware. Puss ’n Boots pieces were made beginning in 1945. A set like yours sold at auction in 2011 for $115.
