About the Canisters Line

McCoy, or rather Lancaster Colony, made a wide range of Lancaster Cannisters over the years.  Below is an example of the wide variation of decal and painted patterns produced.


Lancaster Colony Canisters were produced in the early 1970's.  The marks in use were Lancaster Colony and #3. It is important to note that while the canisters shown above are in fact part of the "Pink and Blue Lancaster Colony Series of Ovenwear, they resemble and are sometimes mistaken for cookie jars!

NOTE: We have amassed a collection of images of many of the known Canister pieces below, however we are always looking for more. If you know of one that is not listed, please let us know by contacting us at
