Pig Cookie Jar

The neighbors next to my parents are moving and put this in their trash. I rescued it. It is in mint condition with not a flaw anywhere on it. The woman that gave this to me, I grew up with. So she told me it belonged to her grandmother. I still can’t believe she was throwing this away.

    This is a beautiful pig. Thank God folks like us are there to rescue these treasures from the trash.

    I’m guessing this is 1930s or so.

    I love his gentle look and eyelashes with a perfect proud pig attitude. Also dig the scarf and his St Paddy’s clover outfit.

    I’m wondering if the cookie jar being a pig is meant to serve as a deterrent to snacking? Nothing like a strong visual reminder of the effects of bingeing to dissuade one from indulging in a handful of Oreos.
