Pigs with Pots, Pin Dishes, Candlesticks, Strikers and Vases

Updated on May 19, 2014

There are a lot of variations of Souvenir Fairings with vessels. Made between the 1890's and 1910 they came with pots, pin dishes, match strikers and candlesticks to name a few. I suppose these items were for more practical uses around the home if indeed that's how you wanted to use the item. I think mostly they were just used to be appreciated in the curio cabinet. I've included 1992 pricing from a booklet that is available at Amazon.com called "This little Piggy" and is still available for purchase.

Here are some interesting links to other types of fairings:
