Cunard Money boxes

Recommended Posts

I collect pig money boxes, I have one from the QM2 and one from the QV. When we sailed on QE in 2011 she didn't have any, does anyone know whether she has started selling them yet please.

Intriguing item--something I've never heard of it.

 

Could you describe it more fully or post a photo?

They are small pottery piggy banks. On the side is the name of the ship. I've got one from Balmoral, Oceana and the 2 from Cunard. I bought them from the merchandise shops on board. I thought it unusual that 2 cunard ships sold them and one didn't, as I believe from other passengers we met they are very popular.

We have ones from QE2 QM2 and QV but have not seen them on QE. I think they might have stopped doing them as I did not see any when I was on QV last week.

Ok, thank you for that. Quite disappointed really.
Hi BillieB,

 

Sorry to say that I didn't see any on sale on board QM2 a couple of weeks ago, and I'm sure I spotted them previously :( .

 

Good luck with tracking them down.

Ahh.. translation; Money Box = Piggy Bank ; -)

 

Learn something new every day.

 

Clearly they appear on ebay; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PIGGY-BANK-QE2-Queen-Elizabeth-2-Cunard-Memorabilia-Very-Rare-Collectable-/121189056354

 

You can set up on ebay to get an email when a saved search for a particular item is triggered so you don't have to check every day.
