About the Swank Line

The Swank Line is part of the various Advertising Items, or what is usually called "Commemorative and Advertising Items" by McCoy . Items found in this category consist of custom made Advertising pieces McCoy made for various customers through the years. Items include banks, breweries, even the GOP, and of course items made specifically for Swank.

It is not unusual to find a Mark on many of these pieces, though not all were marked. Advertising pieces are quite rare, but not impossible to find. Many were given out by banks to customers, larger companies such as breweries would have given them to employees, and so on.

The pieces listed here were made specifically for Swank Mens Product Co., by McCoy Pottery. Among the items made by McCoy for Swank, several decanters and 6 Dresser Caddies made in the 1950's to hold the contents of a man's pocket overnight.
