Small & Cute Vintage Pottery Butchers Display Pig

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A very sweet and cute little pottery pig, dating from the mid twentieth Century, which is deceptively heavy for its size.

It’s common for butchers shops to have figurines, especially of pigs, on display to help advertise their produce. This figure is quite small in size but is very sturdy, made of a heavy pottery material. Lots of attention has been given to the finish of this piece, with different colouring and shading used to give as realistic a finish as possible. It’s a very nice little piece.

The butchers display pig is in very good condition. There is a small nick in the ear, as can be seen in the photographs, but this is aged and probably dates from the time of production.

Length, 10.5cm; Depth, 5cm; Height, 7.5cm
