Founded in 1880, W. C. Bunting became one of the many pottery companies to locate in the East Liverpool, Ohio, area. In 1946, after the World War II GI’s started attending college, Bunting began to manufacture items with college logos to commemorate their college days. This 1950s piggy bank is marked with The Centre College of Kentucky seal in gold, as are all of the other markings on this cute pig. On his tummy is the W. C. Bunting company mark, indicating they were “A Great Name in Pottery” and that they were located in Wellsville, Ohio. After a fire at their plant in 2015, Bunting merged with another company. The 5 3/8” x 3” x3” bank is in excellent condition with not chips, cracks or crazing.
