4 Ft. Tall French Butchers Shop Plaster Pig Advertising Restaurant Display 1920s

About

Fabulous for a restaurant, bar, gourmet food shop, or a home kitchen, an authentic French butcher shop pig, circa 1920s, made of plaster covered composite. Standing over four feet high and displaying a marvelous personality, he would have been placed daily, outside of a shop as an advertisement for a butcher during retail hours. The pig would have been carried back indoors at the end of the work day. The pig wears a white half-apron tied over blue trousers and a white chefs shirt. He has a red kerchief round his neck, a green checked kitchen towel tucked into his waistband, and two wooden cooking spoons peeking out of his breast pocket. A tall chefs toque completes his outfit. The hand-painted details have faded nicely – an incredible display piece. 49.25 in. H on a base measuring 19.25 in. L x 15.5 in. W His ears measure 18 in. across. The last two photos show scale. In very good vintage condition. Visible seams where the molded parts are joined, light wear to the snout and base as expected.
