Piggy Banks
Published by in Origin ·
The piggy on the right was first identified by me as Mexican. No proof, but the colouring had similarities with many Mexican piggy banks in my collection. Then I bought the left one (1027 in my collection) on eBay.de(look-alike, different decoration, also 25 cm) and decided that Mexican provenance was questionable. Then what? For the time being I identify them as Latin American origin, but without proof. So if anyone knows better? Please let me know.

The green one has a decoration with Sanskrit or Hindi texts (or something similar). Can anyone help me translate it, presuming that the decoration is indeed genuine language.
