Additional trivia tidbit: In Old England “pig” can mean either the animal or earthenware. The English would  often save their money in kitchen pots and jars made of earthenware, called “pig jars”. By the 18th century, the term “pig jar” had morphed into “pig bank”. Eventually the name came to refer specifically to the shape of the bank, instead of the material used to make it.pottery Handmade Piggy Bank 5
