Did you know the history behind the piggy bank??? With this fun Old World Christmas Piggy Bank Ornament, which is a delightful glass tribute to the charming evolution of coin storage you can get a glimpse into it's evolution. In medieval England, the term "pygg" referred to clay, and small jars for coins became known as "pygg banks." In a whimsical twist, a potter unfamiliar with the term crafted them to look like actual pigs, giving rise to the beloved piggy banks we know today.


This glass ornament pays homage to that serendipitous moment in history. Resplendent in a bright pink hue, it embodies the classic piggy bank aesthetic with its round body, smiling face, and the promise of treasures within. No need to smash this one open; it's a treasure in itself when adorning a Christmas tree.


The Piggy Bank Ornament from Old World Christmas is not just a festive decoration; it's a charming nod to the unexpected origins of a beloved symbol. Hang it proudly, and let it become a whimsical reminder of the delightful ways in which history and tradition come together to shape the everyday items that bring joy to our lives.
