Streetcar named Desire Still Bank in bronzed spelt metal

Stella! Stella! We all know the movie, named after the famous streetcar line in sultry New Orleans.

Here is a nice metal still bank of the streetcar "Desire" sold as a NOLA souvenir in the mid 20th century. It is in overall great shape, with the exception of a spot of white zinc metal powder poking through shown in the last photo. A touch of a marker would fix it cosmetically, but I'm leaving that for the new owner. There is a bright speck on top where the copper-bronze tone is brighter, due to a bit of 'schmutz' I cleaned off that kept it bright underneath instead of patinating over time. It has no stopper and had none when I got it, however it may have come equipped with one when new.
