About the Artist:

The Hubley Manufacturing Company produced a wide range of cast-iron toys, banks, doorstops, and bookends. Toys, particularly motor vehicles and cap guns, were also produced in zinc alloy and plastic. The company is probably most well-known for its detailed scale metal kits of classic cars of about 1:20 scale. Starting in 1960, Hubley participated for a couple of years with Detroit automakers as a plastic promotional model maker. Many Hubley products are now sought-after collectibles.



Product Description:

This tall and hefty cast-iron pig bank produced by the Hubley Manufacturing Company in the late 1950s carries a briefcase that has the verse “The Wise Pig: Save a penny yesterday, another save today, tomorrow save another, to keep the wolf away.” The word “Thrifty” appears at the bottom of the bank, just below the feet of the pig.

This charming, black-painted bank is in excellent vintage condition, free of rust and paint loss, though the words of the poem are somewhat worn off and difficult to read. The bank has a large coin slot on the back of the pig’s head, and midway down the animal's back appears a screw that, when unscrewed, opens the bank to collect the money stored inside.

This cast-iron bank would make for a wonderful gift for any youngster eager to save his or her pennies and other change. This “wise pig” is ideal for any collection of Hubley-manufactured or general cast-iron products.
