Description

Details

In the 19th Century, the humble pig was sometimes described as the 'Gentleman in the corner.' This might seem a strange description but in many ways poignant, as when the pig was sold, the money was used to pay the rent to the Landlord. As can be imagined its continued good health and survival was the owners best insurance to avoid eviction - that is at least for another year! In time the pig became associated with good luck and good fortune.
