BOTAY UHL POTTERY PIG PIGGY BANK KANSAS CITY MO

Up for your bidding pleasure is this rare and very hard to find vintage Pig Piggy Bank made by the Uhl Pottery Company and decorated by "Botay", Kansas City Mo.. I believe this little piggy dates from the early 1940's. The following is an excerpt from an online Library website about the history of this pottery company;

WE MADE A LINE OF MINIATURE JUGS AND NOVELTIES FOR A PERFUME AND COLOGNE COMPANY IN KANSAS CITY NAMED “BOTAY”. THEY BOTTLED SOME OF THEIR PRODUCTS IN THE JUGS, WHICH WERE HAND DECORATED. WE ALSO MADE THEM A LINE OF PIG BANKS WHICH THEY DECORATED AND SOLD.

This piece measures 6 1/4" tall to the top of her ears x 9" long x 5" wide. This piece is highly decorated over a white base glaze with cold paint { red, black, green & blue }. She has Blue Dots throughout and Red Roses with Leaves on the front and back of her ears and to both sides of her rump. She also has Red and Black outlines for her Feet, Mouth, Snout and Eyes. This cold paint decor I would say is 99.5%intact { just beautiful, see photos }. Other than an old chip to the underside of her right front foot { see photo } this Little Piggy is in very good clean condition with no other, chips, cracks or repairs. She does have light tight crazing due to age { needed to us a magnifying glass } and a small glaze miss on the bottom her left hind foot { please see photos }. Any white spots you may see in the photos are only light reflections, not condition issues unless otherwise mentioned. There is no hole for removing the coins but she is marked on the bottom in this area; Botay K. C. MO. and also has an original old ink stamp price { see photos }. This is a Rare Old Piggy Bank that will most certainly make a valued addition to your collection.
