Shaped like a red and white barber pole, this vintage Royal Copley BLADES bank was made for holding used razor blades. More often, it was used as a coin bank.
This RC bank still has its original foil label on the front...a rarity in itself. It measures 6 1/4 inches high.
As with most old ceramics, there's some light overall crazing but no chips or cracks. The red stripes and the gold trim are excellent...show no wear.
There's old red felt at the bottom covering the opening...we think this is how it came as we've seen another with the red felt.
Overall, this is in excellent vintage condition. Great gift for the man who shaves with a real razor or the guy with too much change in his pockets.
