An acquaintance came into the possession of this article and wonders what it is. I don't know, but someone here might.

Please advise.

My Mom had something sort of similar at one time, but in the shape of a horse. It was an incense burner.

From what I've found...

It's a tea holder.

You put your tea leaves into a small bag, stuff it inside the pig, then lowre the pig into a pot of hot water, let the tea 'brew' then remove the pig and you have tea leaf free tea to drink.

only a guess, based on this
cgi.ebay.ca...

Yup, looks like an incense burner to me. Maybe you can also put a light inside and use it as a lamp

Well, thank you for the prompt responses.

If anyone else has anymore ideas or has some definite knowledge, post it here and I'll pass it along and let the lady decide for herself.

Holy pig Batman.

I'd go with a hanging tea light pig.

There have been a couple of good guesses, but, I can't judge the size of the object without something like say a quarter lying next to it to compare the size by. Any chance you could post a picture like that?

Edit* to add

I don't think it can be a tea holder, it looks like cast iron to me, iron and water don't mix well.

The pig is roughly six inches long.

A member of another board has found this almost identical item.

I think we've hit paydirt.

Thank you all!
