Antique Paper Mache Pig Candy Container 7 1/2 In. For Sale
This little beauty dates to the late 1800's. It came from a trunk that had been packed away for many years in Ypsilanti Michigan . It measures approximately 7 1/4 inches from his snout to the end of his cute little tail. It is aprox.3 1/2 in tall. It doesn' t have a country of origin mark,but i believe it came from Germany. He is in very nice condition. He is made of paper mache .I have tried to show in the pictures that he has some plaster missing from one ear and a small crack in his head . No doubt from taking the head on and off this crack is only apron. 1/4 in. in length.His two back legs were repaired. When my husband inherited this trunk it had quilts,dolls ,and various other children's toys. There was even a note written by a young girl with a drawing of her family in their house. The letter was dated 1891. Every antique lovers dream. To know where something came from and how old it is.Please contact me with any questions!
