Chinese Porcelain Lucky Sleeping Pig with Red Pillow
This smiling sleeping pig is a symbol of luck and family harmony in China. The pig was domesticated early in the history of China and quickly became a symbol of prosperity and good fortune. If you were rich enough - the pig would live in your house, and in fact, the Chinese character for home is made up of the symbols for "roof" and "pig" thus the legend that a pig under the roof equals happiness for the home. These porcelain smiling pigs will be resting happily on a red pillow (red is also an auspicious color in China). Each pig is almost 7" long and weighs about 2.5 lbs.
