Vintage pottery piggy bank hog collectible Mexican folk art pottery pig Southwestern decor

Sorry, this item has sold.

Sow, you like pigs, do you? Well, here's an absolutely adorable pottery piggy bank, where you can hog all your coins until the time comes to go hog wild and spend 'em. The origin of this pig is a bit of a mystery--it's made of pottery, fired in a kiln, and painted in a Mexican style, yet it has a New Mexican Pueblo Indian look and feel as well. Being that it's unsigned, I guess we'll never know for sure. Not terribly big, this pig has great presence. I honestly wouldn't use her as intended, as I couldn't stand to harm her in order to get to my money! Instead, I'd place her onto a shelf or table and admire her daily. And who knows, maybe she'll still bring riches. After all, are symbolic of prosperity, richness, fortitude, not mention being pig-headed in running with speed toward what you want. In short, pigs are awesome!

Measures just over 6" across by 7-1/2" tall and about 4-1/2" deep. She's a squat narrow pig. Main condition issue is she has a few "scratches" where something has rubbed against her and left a smudge in the matte finish. I would embrace these imperfections versus trying to rub them out, as doing so could create an even bigger blemish. Otherwise in good vintage condition.

A fabulous pig gift for even the piggiest of friends!
