An architectonic piggy bank in the shape of a half-cut ball or hemisphere. A great gift for the person who has everything, someone saving for something special, or those who just love beautiful design. It sways as you insert coins and can be tilted in different angles as more coins are deposited. There is no other hole in the piggy bank to release the money, therefore money can only be slowly shaken out through the slit, or smashed when you need the money. Great for that change in your pockets at the end of the day.

Made from Porcelain.
When breaking the bank, use gloves and glasses for protection. Please keep away small children to avoid accidents.
JICON is a porcelain brand launched together with a Japanese designer, OJI Masanori. The brand name means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." In the Buddhist words, JICON means "seize the day." It also denotes "porcelain (JI) created by the house of IMAMURA" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago.
