This adorable pink on white vintage piggy bank is ceramic with hand painted details and gilded floral stamping. It is a mother pig, with two babies on her left side.
Has the traditional top coin slot.
6" from snout to tail
3 3/4" tall
This is in very good to excellent condition with no cracks no crazing, just a bit of wear on the gilding in places (see the top view of the coin slot) .
There is a pre-glazing wrinkle in the clay from her left ear to her left cheek: this is not a crack, it is structurally sound.
Comes with rubber plug so savings can be taken to the bank, and start over again!
Made in post war Japan, with foil paper tag still attached under it's chin.
