This is a charming early treen still bank or money box in the form of a chest. On the top is a quote from Robbie Burns, “Gather gear by every wile That’s justify’d by Honour”. This is on a transfer which includes foliage and a rose. On the front there is a slot for the coins, the statement BANK OF ENGLAND and a registration mark below for timber, 5th June, 1879. On one side, one of the sections can be swung out to provide access to the money. The condition is good for age with some losses of the transfer on the corners and some areas of slight loss of the timber surface and small scratches, but the overall effect is quite delightful and this would be a lovely addition to a collection of still banks/money boxes. 3 ins (7.6cm) x 2.1 ins (5.4cm) x 1.75 ins (4.4cm). Weight 46 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 227.
