Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice redware pottery bank in very good condition. Definitely would make a great addition to any collection of still penny banks or contemporary redware pottery.
Condition: The bank is in excellent good condition with no cracks, no repairs, and no hairlines. The bank has no observable crazing to the glaze. The piece has a few of the defects you would expect in primitive pieces of redware pottery such as pops, areas where the glaze did not fully flow, slubs, a spot of wondering slip (see the back of the pig), and uneven areas. This piece has very few of those but they are there. Be that as it may, the piece is in great condition and looks great. Please see photos for additional condition information.
