This beautiful safe bank was made by the Henry C. Hart Mfg. Co. of Detroit, Michigan. The company was founded in 1884 and made parts for the railways as well as safes and toys, most of which were composed of cast iron. This particular bank has the patent date of May 12, 1885 along with the name of the company, cast into the underside. Also just above it are the numbers 2 and 6 scratched through the enamel paint; this is the combination for opening the safe. The numbered dial needs to be set at 2 at the top, and then the inner dial pointed to 6 in order to open the door. The bank is in great condition considering it's age; note the beautiful gilt details on the sides and top as well as the door, and the handles on both sides that are still intact. It measures 4 1/2" in width; 4" in depth; and 5 1/4" in height, and weighs just under 3 lbs. A wonderful piece of American history!
