Unknown mini ceramic piggy bank

Post by missdelaney on October 15th 2018, 9:14 pm

Been helping my mum have a clear out and we found this little guy in a shoebox, with some old pennies inside. My mum likes her antiques and is just curious as to who made him and when, as it was given to her by her grandmother about 50 odd years ago.
I tried to get the measuring tape in each one but it's a bit blurry, so the length is about 2.5", height 2", and, from ear to ear, 2".





Any help is much appreciated and thanks in advance

I would guess at Italian 1950s.

I think 1960s but it doesnít match the style of any U.K. ones Iíve cone across over the years, so Italian would be my guess too

Thank you for you replies... Any idea on the mark, if it is a mark?
I think it look like a lower case "y"
