Pig with Money Bag

Catalog No. 770

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“Das Glück ist rund, wer’s kriegt dem ist’s gesund.”
(Luck is round, he who catches it will be healthy.)

The pig is a good luck symbol in Germany, which no doubt accounts for the money bag.

Later reproductions, most likely post-WWII (below right), have no pewter lid ring and a different handle that does not include the pig’s tail.
