Circa 1900, unmarked, but known Schäfer & Vater, Germany (Wojtkowski, pg 140).  Pair of bisque "Good Luck" party pig cabinet shoes with in-mold pigs and 4-leaf clovers.  Left-facing shoe has a banjo playing pig impressed 4100A and right-facing has a drinking pig impressed 4100B.  Backsides are plain bisque with inmold running pigs with clover tails.  The plain treatment of the back or non-display side was a common feature of so called "cabinet" shoes, as the items were designed to be seen from behind the glass door of a curio.  Size is ~ 6.5 x 2.75; 4.8 oz each; condition report: Excellent display as shown.  R shoe with tinted nick to back of hat; L shoe with nick to snout & rim, neither distracting.   Item #193SL&R, Price $140.
