In Spain, traditional ceramic piggy banks were not actually shaped like pigs, but were clay vessels known as hucha de barro. A design studio from Valencia, Mr. Simon, has created an updated version of these vessels that slowly ‘counts’ the accumulating money.
Called Dos Pavos – Spanish slang for 5 pesetas – the modern piggy bank is intended to save €2 coins. As the bank is filled up with coins, the ceramic top rises to reveal denominations on the wooden base.
Minimalist and modern, the Dos Pavos piggy bank is a beautiful way to save coins, and as it grows in height, you can rest assured that so does your wealth.
