ITEM #: 12542 Guinea Pig Ornament by Old World Christmas
From Old World Christmas. A Guinea Pig is neither from Guinea nor a pig. The pig part of their name is found in German and Russian translations. Years ago, as people set sail for the New World, they gathered provisions including little sea pigs. Today, Guinea Pigs are kept as pets. Capturing their cute little faces and paws, this Guinea Pig ornament makes a great gift for anyone that keeps one as a pet.
