A vintage carved soapstone desk weight in the form of two pigs (sow and younger pig). Unlike many soapstone models, which are often crudely carved, this item is quite finely fashioned and we have tried to show this in the photographs.

The desk weight has been cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.

The base of the weight measures just under 6in by just under 2.75in at its longest and widest, although because the base is slightly curved the area occupied would probably be around 3in. The desk weight stands about 2.75in to the top of the larger pig’s rump. Weighs about 574g. Exact age unknown but probably dates from the first part of last century.
