This great piece of folk art chalkware apple bank is from the late Roger Bacon collection (Brentwood, New Hampshire), with the Skinner’s Auction label still attached on the base. The bank is whimsically painted with three bulls eyes, which perhaps could be explained in William Tell’s story of shooting the apple off his son’s head with an arrow - this is certainly open to interpretation. Overall good condition, with some losses and surface discoloring and wear. Dimensions: 3 ¼” h x 3 ¼” w.
Featuring period furniture, fine art, quality porcelain, silver and decorative accessories.
