It is certainly a bit hard to explain what makes this old glass pig head jar so endearing. Maybe because it is so unusual? Or maybe because we have never seen one like it? We love it, sitting on a shelf or a credenza. Put your sweets or marbles, or even your keys or dog treats inside of it! Old molded glass with a pig shaped head that hinges up to open the jar. red eyes. Old brass tone over what looks like silver plate, though we are unsure. Unmarked.
The head has some patina and surface wear. A few scratches and a ding or two. One red ye is still some kind of applied raised bump. The other looks like it has been colored i over time. The glass is in good condition with some minor surface wear.
