Farmer Pig

Once again, I missed Vintage Thingies Thursday over at Confessions of an Apron Queen. But had I remembered in time, I would have shared this piggy bank that I found in an antique store back in the days when I was collecting pigs. I thought he was cute, like here's Farmer Pig and his adorable bunny sidekick.


Depending on how you have him tilted, Farmer Pig's eyes appear open . . .

. . . (wow, he looks a little insane, doesn't he?) or shut . . .


I'm not sure when I noticed what Farmer Pig was holding in his other hand. (It's an anthropomorphic pig so I can say hand. And yes, I had to look that word up.)

At first I thought, Oh my God, the pig shot the bunny and now he's going to eat him for supper! But the rabbit is obviously alive so maybe the farmer just caught him stealing carrots or something. He seems to have that expression. "Oh, look. Farmer Pig got me."


I don't know how old the piggy bank is. Even though there's a shotgun involved, this is still one of my favorite pigs.

What a great find - and I love your observations about the rabbit!

This is soooo cute! I love the changing eyes! Maybe Farmer Pig is holding him up along w/his shotgun as a warning to other bunnies who might be thinking about stealing carrots from the garden! LOL!
