    This set is full of detail and fascinating. I've never seen anything quite like it. It is signed with the initials "J. S." Some of the piglets are also signed. The bottom of the figurines appear to have fibers trapped in the casting...I am assuming that they are lost wax but do not know anything about that or about bronzes in general. I would love to know more if anyone can help. Origin? Maker? How can I find out about such things? It seems people collect pigs in particular. ADDENDUM I discovered a set with the sticker still on and shows Made in England. Originally came with a wooden base.

      That's a beautifully modeled set.
      I initially thought Asian but the signature sure isn't!

      Thank you for the feedback. I agree it most likely isn’t Asian with those initials. And now I am a pig collector!

      Solved my own question and will leave this here in case anyone else finds a set
