Pigs & Other Animals

In Bohemia, Karel Nekola’s birthplace, the pig is a symbol of good luck and model pigs are exchanged at New Year.   Wemyss® pigs retain their popularity, and their longsuffering expressions lend them a humorous charm.  We can make most sizes of pig into a ‘piggy bank’ on request. The sleeping piglets are often used as paperweights.

Our cockerel shape is taken from a model made at the Bovey Pottery.  It has a lively naturalism, which is also shared by our rabbits and bulldog.

Please note that the majority of designs you see throughout our website can also be produced on our pig, rabbit, bulldog and cockerel pieces.
