This rare money box was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1830. It is a scarce example of early English folk art and one of the best that we have retailed. This large money box is modeled as a traditional symmetrical three storey Georgian/ Federal era house and is complete with glass windows (replacement glass) and a large penny money slot. Due to its large size, we would think that this money box was likely produced for a charitable cause. It is naively constructed from wood and is decorated with painted sand which gives the gorgeous textural quality to the exterior. This really is the perfect item for anyone who collects early folk art, you will adore it as it has age and patina to die for.
Measuring: Base width 8.25 inch (21 cm) by depth 6.25 inch (16 cm) by height 6 7/8 inch (17 cm).
Condition: Minor surface wear perfectly commensurate with age. A wonderful, all original dry patina to the painted surface.
