This mama pig with three hungry piglets is napkin or sponge holder. This is an Otagiri product made in Japan in the 1980s in Japan. The holder is 4 inches tall, 7 inches long, and 3 inches wide. There is an adequate opening for a good supply of napkins or a sponge. Mama pig is quite vintage and is showing a few signs of her age. She has a number small chips on each ear. However, there are no other chips or cracks and there is no crazing. You can see these flaws in the photos; but, the photos were taken at high magnification and make the chips look worse than they appear under usual circumstances. The Otagiri black and gold foil label and trademark are on the bottom. This is an adorable napkin or sponge holder and still displays nicely. The holder is an example of the life like designs in the Otagiri products.
