Retro 60s Flower Black Background Year of the Pig Exhibition Small Pig
Wemyss Ware® is Scotland's most famous pottery. Hand finished and hand painted in Ceres, Fife at the Griselda Hill Pottery since 1985. Fife is the birthplace of Wemyss® pottery in 1882.
This Small Pig was painted by Roseanne as part of our Year of the Pig Christmas Exhibition in 2019.
In Bohemia the pig is a symbol of good luck, and chocolate pigs are traditional New Year presents. It is believed that Karel Nekola brought his enthusiasm for pigs with him from his homeland, and persuaded his boss at the Fife Pottery to make them in several sizes. They were an immediate success, finding their way into many living rooms to enchant generations.
The very sweet Small Pig comes in a huge variety of designs.
