Absolutely adorable antique Victorian carved mother-of-pearl lucky pig charm/pendant on a gold filled/rolled gold curb chain.
This little piggy is wonderfully detailed, we love his very cute long snout, curly tail and black glass eyes. He suspends from a gold chain that has plenty of age to it too. Perfect for layering with your neck mess or wearing alone as a unique signature piece. The popularity of lucky Victorian pigs blossomed in the 1800s. As symbols of good luck and prosperity in a New Year, they were featured on cards, jewellery, ornaments and sweets!
