I was immediately drawn to this ceramic frog because of its bright red glaze, but also because I’ve been trained to keep my eyes peeled for money boxes – for years my very good friend, Niall, collected piggy banks (until he just had way too many!) so I was always on the lookout for them. I know that if he was still a collector he’d snap this chap up, and rightly so – these mid-century Baldelli money boxes sell for between $80 and $100 – even with our slightly improved exchange rate that’s a cool R1000! Aside from the frog that we have for sale today they also produced a fantastic cat and owl, all in this same crazy style – imagine having a collection of them!
