This is a stylish cast iron bank with original key. This appears to have been made by Kenton in the US (reference “The Penny Bank Book” by Andy and Susan Moore). The impressive building has multiple cut-out window features and steps going up to the door, which opens with the included key. The roof has an intricate design typical of such cast iron banks. There is the label on the front for STATE BANK. There is a metal rod going from top to bottom which has been tightened with a nut. The condition is good for age with some residual gilding but certainly some of this is rubbed. The key is functional but it has some rust which could be removed. This still bank presents very well and would contribute very nicely to any collection. Height 5.5 ins (13.8cm) x width 4.5 ins (11.4cm) x depth 3.3 ins (8.5cm). Weight 810 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 227.
