ITEM 2388. "BEISER & FISHER
/ N. Y" WHISKEY PIG, amber with an olive cast, figural pig,
smooth base, 9 3/8"L x 3 3/4"H, applied double collar,
shallow ¼" chip on edge of snout, otherwise perfect.
American, C. 1870, very rare.
This rare whiskey bottle is among the very rarest of the figural
pigs and it is the key bottle that many collectors are missing
in their "run" of piggies. The bottle is not technically
perfect but the noted flake is "non-disfiguring" and
in our opinion, the color and crudity of the piece more than
compensate for this minor bit of damage.
