Antique pig - pincushion? Pig has had a hard life!
Marbled slip - I’ve seen similar money boxes being sold as 19th C Staffordshire.
Is this a pincushion one? And is 19th C right?

When I see that white clay I always think 1950s. Is he not dipped upside down in the base brown then white black streaks added with a brush? So not slip? I agree with pincushion. Pity about the damage

You’re probably right about the date. I’m happy to get something damaged out of a 50p box and learn something new.
