Lucky Penny Pig

Lucky Penny Pig


hese lucky penny pigs are a good luck symbol that I have borrowed from Germany. A long standing custom in Germany is to give good luck charms out over the Christmas period and throughout January. The German word Glùck means luck and happiness as well as fortune ..blessings and success. Originally made from pink marzipan my take on them are made with polymer clay and had a UK penny for luck. See a penny..pick it up..on this day you shall have good luck! Sitting approx 3 or 4 cms high and 4 cms in diameter they are a perfect little keepsake and I have sold some for wedding favors too. Maybe to wish someone good luck in a new home or job..or even a little talisman for a good life. Whatever your reason for buying one of these they are a joy and really do bring smiles to people’s faces. These little cuties are an amazing good luck token gift for people who have passed their driving test or for exam good luck too. These are not toys and should not be played with. For decorative purposes only.
