We’ve all heard about the NatWest Piggy Banks of the 1970’s haven’t we? Well, it’s time to move on!
Swearpig is a patented design No 4039585
SwearPig is a Ceramic Piggy Bank which is produced using top quality slip making a strong earthenware foundation. An off white glaze comes with #OriginalPig and it is then fired again making for a high gloss shiny finish. Our unique cork stopper is sourced from sustainable Cork Oak forests in Portugal where the cork is harvested once every 9 years.
# OriginalPig – Our Original Piggy Bank. Finished in an off-white glaze, this ceramic piggy bank is hand crafted in Derbyshire.
We have a range of piggy banks to suit different tastes and indeed budgets.
SwearPig stands at 12.5cm height x 17cm long x 11cm wide. It weighs 425 grams net and approx 600 grams when packed. It is delivered in a customised sized box with packaging material ready to be posted.
