VINTAGE French Cast Iron Pig Towel Holder,"Le Tete de Cochon"

Fabulous vintage French cast iron pig head fashioned into a towel holder. This heavy (5-6 lbs) and very sturdy piece was likely used in a butcher shop (a "boucherie"), and has no doubt seen some action. It is in excellent vintage condition, with a nice patina to the beautiful and vibrant pink coloring; wear appears consistent with it's advanced age. Come on, who doesn't want a nice old pig in their kitchen?
Dimensions: 9.5 inches long, 5.5 inches wide.
