Vintage CHALKWARE PIGGY BANK Pink Chalk Pig Still Bank! - eBay (item 310033247431 end time Mar-25-08 17:36:30 PDT)
This vintage chalkware piggy bank likely came from a carnival long ago. There's no maker's mark. It's a cute fat smiling girl pig with long eyelashes and a bow on its neck. I think it used to be Pepto Bismol pink, judging from the bright color underneath. It's faded to pale pink everywhere else.
The finish has marks and numerous chips. The right eyelashes are pretty much gone.
She's 8 inches long and about 5 inches high. There's no way to get your coins back out except to slide a butter knife into the slot and shake and jiggle them out. It's either that or smash her. Yikes!
