Circa 1880's Rare Cast Iron Still Bank Original Paint.
It is my opinion that this bank was made by Kyser & Rex, the makers of the Young America cast iron still bank.
This bank is seldom if ever seen with all original paint.
Even the Young America bank from that era has no paint.
This is a joy to hold because of the paint, to have this bank in such fine condition is amazing.
I never had the key, wish I did because it would be great to find old paper money inside, which, no very doubt if anything is inside, but it is the type bank one would keep not just coins, but a special paper etc.
It weighs over 2 pounds and is cast iron, not signed.
Old pencil writing on back has a Y with a slash , then 50.
It is 4 1/2 inches tall , the base is 4 inches square.
I use natural light from a skylight in my home, the photos captured this bank well.
I will pay the shipping as a thank you for your purchase, your only cost is the insurance.
