Vintage 10-Inch CAST IRON PIG Outdoor Candle Lantern! - eBay (item 310026185869 end time Mar-01-08 21:07:52 PST)
This outdoor candle lantern is a cast iron holey pig. It's a real attention grabber. I see no maker's mark anywhere. A platform in the bottom belly holds a tea light or candle. A sturdy metal ring on the back hangs it up or it stands firm on four legs.
He's ten inches long and weighs almost seven pounds. His snout and ears have some light rust, but he's built solid.
Does this vintage cast iron pig outdoor candle lantern make you smile? It tickles me.
