Collectibles of the Week–Scottie Cookie Cutters

Green scottie

I  have so many wonderful collectibles acquired over the last 80+ years.  Some were gifts, some were part of my life growing up, some were inherited, some were purchased at antique malls, gift shops or thrift stores  – all are precious to me.  Some items are kept up year-around while others are brought out seasonally and on holidays.  Unfortunately, many priceless-to-me objects go undisplayed and unseen for years, so each week, I’m going to pull out an item and post a COLLECTIBLE OF THE WEEK.

In line with my love of anything Scottie, I have a small assortment of cookie cutters.

The green-handled cutter at the top is one of my favorites, part of a larger collection of vintage cutters with depression-green handles.

I also like a red-handled Scottie and two plain vintage aluminum cutters plus a copper one from the 70s.

The card with the Scotty and recipes was a St. Nick gift one year and the red plastic along with the small aluminum cutter with an upturned tail give me a wide range of size and shape when I want to bake Scottie cookies.

  1. Aren’t they darling?! I’ve never even seen a Scottie cookie cutter! I should look for some, as my DD owns 2 black schnauzers that look very much like Scottish Terriers. Thanks for telling me/us about these cute collectables, Lillian.

  2. I knew when I saw the title that these would be adorable! I remember my grandmother having some cookie cutters with green handles, but I don’t think she had a Scottie. Great collection!

  3. these are just adorable! We have a mini schnauzer who looks *exactly* like this in silhouette. I’ve long been on the lookout for a cutter shapped like her. Can’t wait to see more of your collection 🙂

  4. Oh Lillian, I hope you saw the opening ceremony of the recent Commonwealth Games in Scotland? So many gorgeous Scotties on parade! Your cutter collection is beautiful and unusual, I especially love the little handles.
