This beautiful primitive piece is a relic from the 19th century. The sweet still piggy bank is nicely crafted and detailed of redware earthenware pottery. The bank features the hand-modeled shape of a large boar pig with big floppy ears and curled tail, with applied top handle and coin slot. He stands on four stubby little legs (one of which is slightly shorter than the others). The piece features a deep and lustrous brown glaze. The bank is in remarkable nearly-intact condition. Bank presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age. There are a few small un-glazed areas; the nose and tip of tail each have a small chip. Please review all photos before purchasing. This sweet and wonderful piggy bank will make an outstanding addition to any early American and Primitive folk pottery collection…Fresh to the market from an old Rhode Island estate!
