Introduction


This site contains a selection of photographs of some 20th century British and European Piggy Banks, with some background history about their manufacture and the potteries that made them. 

Piggy Banks have become highly collectable in recent years and the online auction sites now have many of the famous piggy banks for sale. Amongst them are Arthur Wood, Szeiler, Wade, Sadler, Masons and Goebel, whilst some of the less common figures do appear. The much rarer Quimper and Wemyss piggy banks can occasionally be found. Hopefully this site will provide some useful background information on some of them.

There is also an enormous amount of interest in the NatWest piggy banks which are featured in considerable detail.

Whilst we cannot guarantee the absolute accuracy of all the information given, we hope it is correct. Queries or comments on the site are most welcome and if anyone can provide additional information, or can correct any errors, please do email us at



Click the links above for some Piggy Bank History or for the individual pages of Piggy Bank Potteries. The final link explains, hopefully in simple terms, some of the basic differences between Earthenware, Stoneware, China etc.
