The penny-counting types will most likely not be able to afford this Steuben Piggy Bank, and those who can will most likely not rely on it as a strongbox for their savings. Made from crystal, this deposit box is "just hungry for your money," as the designer describes.

Harry Allen, the creator of this and many other swine repositories, allowed this particular piece to take on a slightly less conventional form. Incorporating the mainstream porker manifestation, this adorable piglet asks for a donation through the snout, and his coin craving extends beyond the sculptural symbolism alone. To purchase this luxury transparent Steuben Piggy Bank, a purse full of cash will be less helpful than a platinum credit card. This little piggy costs a whopping $1,900.
