Piggy Planter

Submitted by Nessa February 9th, 2010

Over the years I’ve collected a massive army of ceramic figural planters. If they’re cheap and funny, I can’t resist them. I also have a particular fondness for pigs, though I hate to admit it. Here is a pig-twin of a planter already submitted to the Kitschenette. Mine has a bit different coloring. These things were hand painted, so you can find dozens of different ones.

    Love this little pig planter as I love the other one submitted at https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/02/07/ceramic-pig-planter/.

    I have a couple pig planters myself as they were a very popular accessory made as much to keep in baby’s rooms stuffed with things like cotton balls and Q-tips as they were for little plants and cactuses to grow out of. I know I lost one of them in the ’94 earthquake out here in LA but I have another one pushing a little wagon as well as one riding a tricycle somewhere. One day when I have a break from my curatorial duties here at AWMoK I’ll see if I can dig them out.

    Nessa I love the tudor in the snow in the background.
    I think it gives the planter a setting congruent with when they would’ve been popular in little kid’s rooms. I also like it when animals are depicted as (maybe unknown) cartoon characters!
