Ok folks, here is a unique find for the pig lover! From an estate in Lancaster Pa. where the house was filled with lots of collectibles, I offer this wonderful wooden carved pig. From a single piece of wood, this 13 1/2" long x 8" tall pig was carved...but the maker did not stop there. He divided the pig into a top and bottom and when the top is removed, you will find a surprise... a carved piglet in the belly of the momma!! The momma's wood has darkened with age having been exposed to the elements but baby pig is lighter in color having been confined to the inner part of momma. It is such a delightful piece with a wonderful surprise...but could be used to keep trinkets in if baby is removed to be at mother pig's side. I have not seen another like it in my searches so know that it is a rare one indeed. A great addition to a collection! Please note: in several photos I did not have the lid on properly so you see a gap between the top and bottom pieces...in reality it fits quite well with no gaps or overhangs.
