Antique Pig Brooch

Edwardian Pig Bar Brooch c.1910

SKU: BR096

A fabulous novelty Pig brooch by Alabaster & Wilson.

 

This quirky brooch has a realistic 3 dimensional gold pig attached to a platinum bar. The brooch is a good heavy weight and has a safety catch to the reverse typical of this quality maker of the time.

 

As symbols of good luck, pigs go back at least to the Middle Ages.  Owning pigs meant a person was prosperous and would never go hungry. The popularity of lucky Victorian pigs blossomed in the 19th Century. As symbols of good luck in a New Year, they were pictured on cards and became popular in ornament and jewellery.
