Miniature chest as a bank

This charming little chest or cupboard is handmade, of mahogany, with a two tone finish. It has a very special function however, as it is a bank, or money box. If you pull out one of it's two drawers (the top three are false drawers) and deposit your money, as you close the drawer, inside it's bottom fall down long enough for your money to be dropping to the inside. In order to get at your loot, you can use the tiny padlock on the back. The lock and key are safely with this cunning little piece. This I believe is a scottish piece, and a clever way to teach their famous thrifty ways. This cupboard/bank is 10.5" tall, 5.5" across at the base and 3.25" deep. The shipping and insurance is included, nothing more to pay.
