This is an intriguing and naïve collection money box in the form of a Pacific Island hut. It is of papier mache (marked CMS possibly for Church Missionary Society) with a slit for the money and wooden base with swiveling opening to retrieve the coins. The condition for age and use is good but it has some wear and paint loss with some white staining on the back. The base has been covered with paper but this is no longer readable. This would be a quaint folk art example to add to a collection of money or alms boxes. Height 5 ins (12.5cm) x diameter of base 4 ins (10.1cm). Weight 70 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 187.
