Despite having to identifying markings, this vintage piggy bank is probably one of the neatest things I've managed to find! It has such a fun, quirky expression on its face and its hat, pearl necklace, and bow on its tale give it tons of original personality. Typical for a piggy bank, there is a slot in its back to put money in and a hole in its belly to take it out. The hole is stopped up with a piece of cork. The cork has seen better days but is still functional enough to keep money inside of the piggy bank. The hat on the pigs head looks similar to a Dumbo hat.

Because it is unmarked it is difficult to give it a specific date but I would access it at mid-century at the latest. It is a china piggy bank and is white with a solid pink glaze across it and a hand-painted face. So its mouth, nose, eyes, and its little feet have been given a bit of black paint to make them stand out. Otherwise the piece is entirely a glazed white. Unfortunately one of its ears broke off at some point in a past life but the piggy bank is in otherwise great condition. There is a uniform cracking throughout the glaze but this is standard for the age of the piece and is only glaze deep and does not go through the body of the pig itself. The cute pig has a big ol' belly and a happy grin on its face as if it had just finished up a big meal.


Approximately 11" long and 4" wide. Hat is tallest point at 8" tall.
