Product Description

An original butcher’s display pig…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s onwards. This particular piece is made in resin (we think) and hand painted. Given its’ patina, we believe this would have had some good usage over the years. It’s in pretty nice shape structurally, yet the surface patina is ‘cracked’. For us, it’s what gives this piece its charm and character! Such a wonderful looking thing…

It’s lightweight, perfectly ‘free stands’ and would look ace on display in ones kitchen, or even in a ‘foodery’ environment…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The pig itself is structurally good and solid. There are surface scars and scuffs, some paint chipping and some small surface losses to the resin. The tail shows a small crack and maybe an old repair, but we think it would only bother the perfectionist. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
