Pull the head off and you were confronted with a long brass tube. In the pig’s other life it was lipstick holder!
My mother had received it from a gentleman admirer in the 1950’s after one of his recent trips to Paris. I am not sure who had made it as the only markings are Paris-Depose, however it just oozes of surrealistic undertones and savoir faire. I am sure a few eyebrows were raised when my mother would pull this out of her purse to touch up her lips in a powder room somewhere. I still have this little pig and I still love it.
Truly an article de-luxe, that carries with it a lot of panache and savoir faire!
