Piggy Bank made of Porcelain
As part of the Roro collection by Rosenthal—that celebrated the 100th birthday of Philip Rosenthal with the popular motif of the pig—the Roro design by Sebastian Herkner is a modern reinterpretation of the classic piggy bank.
With just 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 recognize 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 stalble 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 and money can be saved easily. The lock and key ensure that your savings are safely stowed away. The pig also looks great as a decorative element, and fits perfectly into any home decor as a minimalist porcelain figurine.
