Vintage Limoges pig box. The pig is a symbol of good fortune for the new year. In German the expression "schwein gehabt” means "got lucky there!" but translates literally to "got pig!". The pig has been a symbol of luck and prosperity since the middle ages because the possession of many pigs was a sign of wealth and meant that you would never go hungry. A small pig is still often gifted around the holidays as a token of good fortune for the new year.
