OLD vase with weird markings--picture included Sign In/Join

I have this old vase (before WWII) of my grandmother's and can NOT find these markings anywhere! Does anyone know what they mean and if it's worth anything?

THANK YOU.

At first look, McCoy jumped out to me. Can you post a picture of the entire vase? I just googled vintage McCoy logo and there was a yellow vase with handles.
I just googled "vintage mccoy pottery trademarks" and there it was!
Start there to determine worth.
Have fun!

Good eye, jaysmom. Don't feel bad, marcy. When I looked at it I thought "joy?" Now that jaysmom points it out, McCoy is obvious!!!!

Glad the photo worked for you!

That is definitely McCoy Pottery made in the USA. Value depends on design and condition (as with everything else). My DM had quite a few pieces of McCoy Pottery during her antique/collectible buying and selling days.

Here's some yellow McCoy pottery with handles:

I have a couple of pieces of McCoy Pottery. Both cookies jars. Well, the jar like this belongs to my DS but is in my possession:

I have a baby chick cookie jar.
Waiting on photo #2!
