Old German Pink Pig Candy Container
Vintage composition candy container in the rare form of a pink pig. The head is delicately painted to highlight a devilish face with red lips and a broad grin in which he bares his teeth. The painted eyes give him an overall scarey look. The tail is rawhide or leather while the head detaches from the body to reveal the storage compartment -- what an odd place to hide that holiday Christmas candy ! Dimensions:: 6 inches long and 3 1/4 inches tall from the foot to the tip of his ear. Origin: Marked Germany. Circa 1920. Condition: Very nice, with a bit of flaking around the neck. No visible repairs or breaks.
