Former GDR
These series are from the former GDR. I bought most of them in The Netherlands, assuming they were typical Dutch. Discovering a similar piggy bank with a sticker of origin pointed out my misunderstanding. Not Dutch!

Gray surface. Patterns of stripes and flowers and a 'Gouda like' trumpet nose. Period: 1950-1975.


As far as I could find out is Boleslawiec (Bunzlau) the centre of the Polish earthenware industry.
Pottery from Bunzlau means also piggy banks.
Most of them, modern times I assume, have a plastic stopper. But there are a few without.
