And here is adorable Annabelle in her school dress, carrying her knapsack on her back! Made by Wade Pottery, England.
In the 1980s, NatWest Bank in the UK was looking to get young people to save and came up with a family of pigs. The first was Baby Woody who you got for free with a 5 pound deposit. After 6 months if you had 25 pounds, you got Annabel and with 50 you got Maxwell and so forth. It ended in 1988 and 5 million pigs were produced. In the 90's they did it again and came up with Cousin Westley. Sir Nathaniel Westminster was the most collectible because fewer were given and fewer produced. In 2011, they made Lady Margaret.
Annabelle is 6.5" tall and her base is 3.75 x 3.25". They are in perfect condition, no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. All have their NatWest plug on the bottom.
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 3 business days of receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 3 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING. That adds to the cost of shipping .
Just contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
I am a fair and reasonable person. If something is damaged due to shipping, I will refund your money or allow you to exchange. If you don't like the item or it's not what you thought, you can send it back for refund or exchange but you will need to pay the shipping cost back to me. My vintage items are sold "as is". Please look at the pictures & descriptions carefully as I will not allow a return if the item is not acceptable for something I described as a flaw or issue.
Send me a convo if interested in a custom mermaid, or anything else! I would be happy to make a one that will resemble a person. I look forward to hearing from anyone who is interested in my work! I also really appreciate good feedback.
