Pig (moulded)

1888-1938 Bohemia.
30mm high
Manufacturer: Karl Palda

Amethyst/Purple. Interestingly made from 2 pieces, the head being glued on, further supporting the button mould theory. This is also unusual in having a shaped brass base.

These were produced by homeworkers using similar moulding tools as button makers.

Size: 30mm (1.2") high

One from a collection of ten pieces, unfortunately I had limited time to photograph the collection so was not able to clean them first.
