Piggy Vesta c1880

Piggy Vesta c1880
Sweet Victorian brass pig "go to bed" vesta in nice original condition and shown with pennies for sizing - measuring just under 2" long nose to tip of tail

"Go to bed" vestas were popular in Victorian times because a match could be used instead of a candle which was considered safer - this little piggy would have had a match inserted in the hole to his snout which would have given just enough light to see!
