Here is a sweet old bank in the shape of a doghouse with a Mother dog and her pups nearby. It is made of ceramic and cute as a button!! I didn't notice any problems except on the back of one little pup's head there is a bit of paint loss. I think this little dog would have been attached to the Mother by a chain or string in years past because both dogs have a small loop around their necks. In overall good condition and a pleasure to display!
