Swedish-Japanese piggy (1)

Pig Piggy Banks 2024
Published by GD in Origin · Monday 18 Sep 2023
Made in Japan, imported to Sweden. Length 15 cm. This has already been explained before, but it wouldn't hurt to say it again. If it says IMPORT under ceramics, as with this piggy bank, then I export it unprocessed as bisquit (fired once, not glazed), in this case to Sweden. And there it is finished: painted and glazed. I have several Japanese piggy banks that I bought in Sweden through Tradera (say, Swedish eBay). To further deepen the Sweden-Japan relationship with me. During WWII, neutral Sweden shipped a lot of iron ore to Nazi Germany and perhaps also to Japan through that connection?
