Pig Wooden Decorative Pull Toy
Of all the farm animals that now call Mount Vernon home, none is rarer than the Ossabaw Island hog. Over a period of two decades, George Washington’s estate has become the mainland’s hub for raising this heritage breed, which originally hails from a small island off the coast of Georgia. Hogs were an extremely important source of protein on Washington’s 18th century plantation.
This vintage wooden folk art toy measures 7” H x 6 ¾” L x 3 ½” W. Black nylon pull rope is 12” long. Painted maroon base is stamped Mount Vernon. Wheels are painted with a black and white checker design.
