Heartease Limited Edition Charity 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 limited edition small pig, beautifully decorated with Heartease Pansy, has been designed by Griselda Hill Pottery Ltd., for the charity CRY for Matthew. CRY (Coronary Risk in the Young) funds heart screening centres and £10 from the sale of each pig will go towards their campaign. Only 100 pigs will be made in this design and each comes with a signed certificate of authentication.

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.

  • Height: 8cm
  • Length: 15cm
