Mystery Pig Bottle

Anybody recognize the Pig Bottle?


I have had this bottle for 45 years and have tried to learn about it with no luck. It is about 6 1/2″ long and is pottery. It has a schooner embossed on the back. Could you please refer me to a person who would know it’s history.

Thank you,  Rita
