Super full working condition on this Hong Kong plastic clown bank. Great colors! A little background:
Hong Kong experienced and economic miracle in the 1940s as the US and other allies stopped buying from Red China. Hong Kong was the plastic toy capital of the world from about 1948 to 1972, and from there China began to dominate plastics manufacturing.
This bank hails from the late sixties to early seventies, and is super cool. Watch his eyes move as he pops coins into his mouth! Or, you can be cruel and slam down the plastic lever and launch coins painfully in to his forehead. It's up to you, you are master of his fate! I wash my hands of it. Measures almost 7 inches tall. Marked Hong Kong on the back. Save the clown!
