A rare Javanese Majapahit Kingdom pottery pig, C14-15th. It is equally rare to find in such a large size, 34 cm long. As is the nature of these piggy banks, it has been broken and restored! Cf. The Legacy of Majapahit, exhibition catalogue for the National Museum of Singapore, where such piggy banks are discussed. Examples to be found in the National Museum of Indonesia. Additional photos are available upon request.
