Old Composition Pig with Blue Eyes and Unusual Spring Tail

Regular price $75.00

I've had a couple of old pink composition pigs, smaller than this one, that were made as candy containers, but this guy is just his own thing--I've seen similar described as butcher shop display pieces, but he's not that big so I'm not sure. (His very animating spring tail, which I've not seen before, would make him very engaging at the check out counter!) Anyway, quite an excellent pig, with great face and piercing blue eyes, and it really is near impossible to stop that tail from bouncing! C. 1920s or so I believe.

5 3/4" long not including tail, 3 5/8" tall x 1 7/8" wide. Very good antique condition, no issues at all.
