Italian Owl Savings Bank

R140.00

My love for piggy banks probably stems from my good friend, Niall, who used to collect them. We lived together for a while so I became a bit obsessed with hunting for the perfect piggy for Niall! An addiction probably spurred on by my brother who was also prone to the (not so) odd ceramic figurine! But I like to think I would have been attracted to today’s little green owl without their influence – he’s a pretty great little birdie! I quite like that he’s ever so slightly assymetrical, and aren’t his eyes just great! The plastic stopper is stamped ‘Ilpra Lesmo‘, which is an Italian plastic factory that’s been going since the 1950s. I don’t think old Hooty dates quite that far back, but I’d still say he must be in the region of forty to fifty years old.

Dimensions: 11cm tall x 11cm wide x 8cm deep
