Industrial designer Harry Allen, whose Pig Bank ($125) has been one of the hottest home accessories for the last few years, has designed another piggy bank for crystal company Steuben. The Piggy Bank, which uses a piggy's snout instead of the traditional coin slot, will cost you more than a pretty penny at $1,900. “He’s just hungry for your money,” the designer explains.
It's funny to me that a piggy bank could cost so much. The amount of coins this lil home accessory can hold wouldn't even come close to adding up to two grand. And the irony is anyone who could spend so much on a piggy bank certainly doesn't need to be counting their pennies.
If you could afford it, would you spend $1,900 on a piggy bank? Or do you think it's silly?
