This is a great vintage candy container of a large green pig with a rider. The pig is made of a flocked pressed cardboard or composition with stick legs. He has a painted snout and eyes and a string tail. The closure is at his belly and is faintly marked Germany. Attached to his back is a funny character that looks like Mutt of the Mutt and Jeff comic strip. Bud Fisher's strip was originally just A. Mutt in 1907 so perhaps this was fashioned during that period. He is made of painted wood and wire with a composition head. He is dressed crudely in checks and stripes and flowered pants which are safety pinned on.
It measures about 5 1/2" long and 7" high and overall both pieces are in very nice condition with minimal wear. There is a little paint loss on the brim of the rider's hat.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
