Rare THOUNE piggy

Piggy Banks
Published by in Additions · 3 May 2019
Nice asset this piggy bank, I wanted to have one for a long time, but could not afford it. And could not get it form eBay, because of a higher bidder in the final seconds of the auction. But I have got it! It’s Thoune majolica pottery with slip or engobe decoration and edelweiss as main motif. The piggy banks from Thun (not to be confused with the Czech Thun where other pottery comes from !) are quite rare and therefore rather expensive. And small: this one is only 13 cm long.
The left ear was damaged, therefore it was relatively cheap. In the meantime Jannie has restored this Thoune piggy bank beautifully. As you can see.
