Antique Cast Iron Still Penny Bank Mutt and Jeff
Date: Uncertain, but most likely sometime in the early to mid 1900s.
Origin: Purchased at an estate auction in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: The bank measures ~5 1/8" at its tallest with the base measuring ~2 1/8" by ~1 3/4" and being ~2 3/4" at its widest. The bank weighs over 13 ounces.
Marks: We have opened the bank and did not observe any markings.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a great and unusual still penny bank which would make a nice addition to your collection.
Condition: The bank is in very good condition. It has no breaks and no repairs. It is all original and in nice original condition. We believe it still retains its original screw and retains some of its original gold coloring (>15%). The bank has lost most of its original color, shows some soiling and has scratches to the surface. The extended nose of Mutt has obviously lost its coloring and has lost the base coating to the point where you can see the shiny metal at its tip. A great looking bank worthy of a spot in your collection. Please view photos to appreciate beauty of this beautiful bank and for additional condition information.
