Pig Fairing Activities

Updated on May 30, 2014

The pig fairings were produced between 1890 and 1910. These little piggies are doing fun activities like playing the piano or looking through a telescope. Most of these "activity" piggies are fairly common and easily affordable to add to your collection

There is a book published called "This little Piggy" and is available at Amazon.com. Although the pricing is from 1992 it is a very good reference.

Here are some interesting links to other types of fairings:
