According to the Brothers Grimm in the folk story "The Town Musicians of Bremen," a donkey, dog, cat and rooster leave their masters (as they are past their prime, working years in life) and head to the town of Bremen to become musicians. On the way there, they come across a cottage where robbers are hiding out, enjoying their plunders. The animals decide to work together as good Neighbors and stand on each other to appear bigger and more imposing. The robbers run out of the house and the animals live there happily ever after. It was this story written in the early 1800s that inspired the enduring image of animals of all types standing together to accomplish an important goal. We’ve turned it into this charming limited edition cookie jar with a Limited Edition firing of 1,802 pieces. Of course, being Beekman 1802, we had to include a goat.
Each hand painted cookie jar is one of a kind, identified with a serial number at the bottom. These limited edition pieces are here for one season only.
