A lovely vintage figurine in the form of a pig from Emmental in Switzerland. This pig is from the sixties when I got it on my first trip to Swizterland; it is made from ceramic, and it is 8 x 5 cm (3 x 2") large. It is a real beauty.
The Emmental is a region in west central Switzerland, forming part of the canton of Bern. It is a hilly landscape, mostly devoted to farming, particularly dairy farming. On my visit to Switzerland I was a guest on such a farm, and on the mantelpiece in the living room I saw a herd full of ceramic cows, some goats, some swine, some chicken and one horse. The farmer told me that it was a tradition to show your total herd there, so that everybody could see how rich you were.... When I left I got one cow, one goat and one swine from him. This listing is for the swine.

All items come from my own collection; because of space shortage, I sell parts of it here on Etsy.

Payment can be done by Paypal and within the EU also by direct bank transfer. Details on request.
