Personal coin collectors have come to take on a variety of different forms over the years but they are generally still defined by the name of "piggy bank." Piggy by YOHO Ceramic intends to reflect its name, but does so in a playful and imaginative way.

The little loose change vault has been sculpted to take only a very vague form of the curly tailed farm animal. Its bodily features have been reduced to the suggestion of different parts, simplified and brought together into a basic bulbous shape with a flat round end to represent its snout. Four short and chubby legs provide more evidence of its original fauna influence and a pair of beady eyes and nostrils animate it further. With its corked base, Piggy by YOHO Ceramic becomes the modern iconic money saver. Stats for Simplified Swine Repositories Trending: Older & Chilly
