Description
This droll piece is absolutely charming. Remember that line "If Pigs Could Fly"? Well this one can! This piece is one of a group that was ThermoLuminescent tested. It can be purchased individually or the group may be acquired in its entirety (at a special price) which is recommended. A copy of the TL test would accompany the piece. The group encompasses the Han Antelope, two smaller acrobats, two larger acrobats, an eagle and, of course, the pig.
