Piggy Bank made of Porcelain
As part of the Roro collection by Rosenthal, who celebrated the 100th birthday of Philip Rosenthal with the popular motif of the piglets, the Roro design by Sebastian Herkner is a modern reinterpretation of the classic piggy bank.
With only a few details, Sebastian Herkner has created a design object that can be immediately identified by its few attributes. "The Characteristic nose alone is enough to recognise a pig in the object." Add a round body and a little curly tail and Roro is complete.
The pig is a tribute to the friendship between Philip Rosenthal and Walter Gropius. When Gropius lost a bet, he had to design a stall for the former domestic pig of the company Rosenthal. That’s how Roro became more and more popular and is now brought back to life in the form of porcelain.
Porcelain Box with Key
Thanks to a slot in the back, Roro can be used as classic piggy bank. Provided with a lock, money resources are well saved and secured. But also as a decorative element, the pig makes a good figure and fits perfectly into any home décor as minimalist porcelain figurine.
