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.
Unique Tiny Pigs painted by Griselda, one for each Zodiac year: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and last but not least, Pig! All painted with a striking black background.
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.
Our Tiny Pig with large ears is a twentieth century Wemyss® shape.
