$1,293


Wallace and Cornwall Kirkpatrick of Anna, IL, were very well known for their folksy stoneware flasks, including especially their pig flasks, which are thought (perhaps) to support the temperance movement since the whiskey had to be poured from the pig's rear (See pictures). This piece is a great example, unsigned, but nearly identical to several other known examples of Anna Pigs. On the side, in script, are the words "Pure Old Bourbon in a Hog's -" and a pointer to the pig's rear. The flask measures 8" long, 3.5" high, and 3" across. Albany glaze. It has several imperfections: One ear is chipped,and has a kiln bubble in it. There is a very old chip on the snout, and the rear cork hole has a chip.
