A.C. Williams Cast Iron ca. 1920’s Gold Figural “Sitting Pig” Hog Swine Still Coin Penny Bank 

This gold ca. 1920’s “Sitting Pig” is a still cast iron figural bank manufactured by the A.C. Williams Co. of Ravenna, Ohio. 

This realistic antique still penny bank is of a pig sitting on its hind legs with its front legs holding him upright. He has a sweet face with red lips and ripples of skin along his golden sides. 

These banks really stand the test of time, but unfortunately most of the time from use the paint fades and chips off. Our sweet piggy still has a lot of good paint left. It has been cast from two halves that are held together with one screw. The screw appears to be original, with the same wear pattern as the pig’s side. There is a coin slot on the back of the pig’s neck. 

This piece is in good all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories and wear that are to be expected from age and play. It is approximately 5” L x 2” W x 3” H. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.    

 

 
A brief history of A.C. Williams Co. of Ravenna, Ohio: 

The A. C. Williams Company was founded in business in Chagrin Falls, Ohio in 1844. It was founded by John Wesley Williams, the father of A. C. Williams. However, there was a big fire at the company, and a decision was made to move to Ravenna. Ohio. Actual production started there in 1893. 

Like the other famous cast iron companies of the time (Hubley, Dent, Kilgore, Arcade, Kenton), A.C. Williams manufactured cast iron cars and trucks.  From 1893 to 1923 they produced cast-iron horse-drawn rigs, autos, airplane, penny banks and tractor toys; the line included mostly miniatures distributed through Woolworth, Kresge`s, and other five-and-dime stores. They even produced some tin cars towards the end of the company’s relatively long history. Unfortunately, in 1938 they closed their toy production and continued in other ventures to this day.
