Vintage Three Piggy's attached ceramic bank circa 1960's. We all need savings For School, For Goodies and For Fun. I found this at an estate sale, and my hunger for cooked bacon just disappeared. The back story I was able to dig up, was this was a part of an extensive piggy bank collection of one of the daughter's who latter on in life worked her way up through the ranks of a very prestigious Wall Street firm.

I just laughed and paced it in my tote bag. This young lady learned at an early age, the difference in savings for Education, special treats...Goodies and then for Fun. She definitely had her priorities in order. I took an oath and told my seller I would not reveal the name of the original owner, I smiled and said...your secret is safe with me!

This happy trio is one piece, it measures 7" long from small hoof on the little guy to the big hook on the big guy. The largest pig, named "For School" measures 5" in length, the medium pig,named "For Goodies" measures 4" in length and the smallest pig, named "For Fun" measures 3" in length. There is a vintage stopper underneath that will need to be replaced, if the receiver of this Fun treasure will use it as a bank, if not don't worry about the stopper.

There is a tiny chip out of one of the big pig's ear, see photo # 4, this in no way detracts from the "adorably" of this piece. Each porker has big eyes, eyelashes, and hand painted red flowers, and individual blue bows just behind their ears. Pink noses, pink cheeks and little red tongues hanging out. As they say, only a Mother would love these guys!

During the Middle Ages, if there was any money left to save the home owners would place there coins in an orange clay bowl made out of "pygg" clay. Fast forward to the 18th Century, when craftsmen were asked to create pygg banks, as they say, something was lost in translation and the poor pig was now a member of the Wall Street Set.

Dr. Who just tried to open a checking account at a major US Bank, but a small problem occurred, he told me in confidence he just recently lost his ID. So now he want this listing!

I just looked up at him, and laughed!
