It was made by the Atterbury Glass Co. This is an original piece with its original red glass eyes. The dish with cover on is about 5 3/8 tall to the top of the head. The lid itself is 3 7/8" tall and about 8 3/8" long by 5 1/8 wide. The base is 1 15/16" tall, 9 1/4" long, and 6 1/8 wide.
The inside of the lid and the bottom of the base are marked with raised letters: PATENTED MAY 29, 1888. This is an Atterbury original covered dish and has the flaws inherent in the early pressed glass pieces. It has two creases where the glass did not fully fill the mould.
There is a small missing piece on one ear that apparently broke out when it was removed from the mould. There is a little gray glob at the base of one ear and a couple pinpoint open bubbles that are full of dirt.
(the whole hog was pretty dirty all over when we found it) Westmoreland reproduced a few of these in the 20th Century, this is not one of those. Aesthetically,, this piece is mint.
