My childhood piggy bank, whom I call wobbly eyes, for obvious reasons!
This was given to me by my grandmother in about 1960 full of 3d bits, so I was rich - for a while.
Over the years I've found 3 more being sold at jumble/boot fairs and I haven't been able to just leave them there, I've had to rescue them and give them a home. I've haven't seen any more for sale for many years though, so maybe I have the last 4!
They all have a run number underneath of MB22, wobbly teddy bear eyes and are varying shades of brown ceramic and are approximately 6 inches high.
Along with my childhood teddy bear, who still sits on my dressing table, this is my favorite piece from my childhood. I'm seriously thinking of filling them with change for my own grandchildren and giving them out at Christmas.
