Black and White Large Pig

The iconic Black and White Large Pig is the pig which started it all! Griselda’s grandmother’s Wemyss® pig was the inspiration for reviving the Pottery in the 1980s. The simple black and white design accentuates the character of the 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. 

Pigs, cats, mice and rabbits can all be decorated in this delightful traditional sponged design, which brings out their individual characters.  

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.

In Bohemia, where Karel Nekola was born, pigs are symbols of good luck. Our magnificent large Wemyss Ware® pig is a great focal point for any room.
