Antique ceramic lard tub container pot with pig decoration

If you like pigs and are into the “new” food called lard, then this tub will be of interest. The piece has a pig with a trough on top on a greens back ground. The sides of the tub feature more pigs eating (what else would they do) and LARD is written on one side. The bottom is marked with some numbers, which I believe indicate Great Britain, but I have not been able to make sure. There is also a letter K on both lid and bottom.

The piece has been used: there is some spotting in the bottom of the tub and two small black spots that appear to be in the glaze. There are no cracks or crazing and the pig on top is intact and undamaged. The lid may at one point have had a rubber ring as it is slightly loose on the tub but is clearly meant for it. It would send a true pig lover to hog heaven.

Measurements are: 5 ½” diameter and 6 ½” tall
