This is a bank that my mother had for as long as I can remember. I don’t know when or how she acquired it, but it was a permanent resident in our kitchen. I always loved the cream and pink colors as well as the adage for The Wise Pig:
“Save a penny yesterday
Another save today
Tomorrow save another
To keep the wolf away.”
I found a nearly identical one in black many years ago; and recently saw imitations of the cream/pink at a local hobby store.
It’s a bit battered from loving wear, but I like its simple message and also knowing that it was one of my mother’s favorite items.
