      I have one of these in mint condition that a friend of mine asked me to sell for her on E-bay. I just measured the cork which is an inch in diameter and has a gold-tone ring attached. If you just want a cork, I would say go to a craft store or hardware store and get one of the app. size and you can also get a similar ring to affix to the cork.
      Also, I just saw this on Ebay for replacement cork but didn't read far enough to see if it is an original or replica:

      Good luck!

      I have just found a corky pig, just like the one I had as a child! There is a cork but do not think the original, because my pig had a hook on the original corky. I found it at an antique store and got it for 40.00 dollars....how much are they worth?
