ANSWER TO YESTERDAY'S "WHAT...?"


If I show you the other side of the object, I'm sure you will guess that it's a very secure Sicilian money box. The only way you could get the money out would be to smash it to smithereens - exactly the sort of money box I should have!

You are clever, Anne.

I'm not very good at this game. Now if it was someplace in Sicily and there was an elephant in the picture...

I saw something similar in a craftfair outside St Nicholas's Market in Bristol last year. They were charging £15 for one. For an extra £5, they'd paint "wedding fund" or "holiday fund" etc. on it. They described it as Roman.

Hi, Betty. I'll take a shot of that scene next time I'm there! Hi, Damon. £20? - Blimey!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Me too, Michelle!

I can't believe it's a piggy bank! I am generally no good at solving your quizes, but of course am thrilled to have lucked out this time! Have you seen a pig-shaped version?
