The Hornsea Pottery was established in Hornsea, Yorkshire in 1949 by Desmond and Colin Rawson and they produced a variety of earthenware ornaments and tableware in fashionable designs. In 1970 another factory was opened in Lancaster due to the heavy demand for what had become an extremely popular range of items.
In 1984 the company was sold and then sold again a year later, resulting in the closure of the Lancaster plant. The Hornsea factory finally closed in 2000.
They are my favourite of a selection of piggy banks I found here
