Here Piggy, Piggy

A modern twist on a treasured classic, this white porcelain piggy bank does away with the usual cork bottom and features an innovative funnel opening that can be used for both depositing and retrieving money. Now you can drop a handful of coins in all at once (instead of the ol' one-at-a-time method) and easily pour out some spare change if you need to. Made in China.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Beloved for centuries, the piggy bank was actually made by accident. In middle English (around the 15th century), the word "pygg" referred to a type of clay used for making various household objects such as jars. People often saved money in kitchen pots and jars made of pygg, called "pygg jars". Somewhere along the way, potters received requests for "pygg banks" and instead made banks shaped like pigs.
