Doulton’s miniature piglets

20140526-162736-59256374.jpg

Animals have always been popular amongst Royal Doulton collectors and one particularly popular set are the six mini piglets pictured here. Introduced in 1959 and withdrawn in 1967 they can be found but not readily thus making them a popular collecting theme. The piglets are all modelled I a grassy base and fortunately three face to the right and three to the left allowing us to create a nice display when we find all six!
The six piglets range in height from 1-2inches and were all modelled by a young Peggy Davies.
