Sussex Pigs

The highly collected Sussex Pig has been made by Rye Pottery for over 200 years. A charming and traditional wedding or anniversary gift from Sussex, this vessel was originally designed as a jug (the body) and cup (the head) to toast the bride and groom at country weddings in the 1800s. In a county renowned for its pigs and boars, guests were rewarded with a hogshead of beer.
