This old ceramic piggy bank is actually a Smurf figure that appears to be having a good laugh. He has squinting eyes and an open mouthed grin under his protruding nose while one hand is on his belly as though he’s having a hardy laugh. The blue body, black shoes, facial details and brown tree trunk are hand painted over the white ceramic. There is a large 1 5/8” coin slot on the peaked white hat. The bottom has a fired ceramic plug which means you had to break the bank to retrieve the money. I believe this is from the 1960’s or 1970’s.
It measures about 8 1/4” high and is in good condition with light wear to the paint especially noticeable on the black shoes.
