This is a Completely ORIGINAL old SMILE & SAVE cast iron Money Bank except for the the screw which is a replacement.....otherwise this has not been 'fiddled with'...no repaint or 'touch-ups'...lovely old thing. SYDENHAM & McOUSTRA who opened The Beacon Foundry at Walsall in England around 1900 went on to make a large variety of banks including these Smile & Save models marked Made in England to the back. This fantastic SMILEY FACE BANK measures 4 1/2" in height and has a maximum diameter of 4 1/4". As far as we can ascertain the banks were produced from around 1910- 1930's. We note similar items listed online from US$300 - $495.
