Antique A.C. Williams Cast Iron Gold Colored Statue of Liberty Still Penny Bank
Description: This is a nice antique cast iron penny bank in the form of the statue of liberty holding a flame in her raised right hand. The bank is painted in gold color throughout. The bank appears to be all original including the screw holding its two halves together which has remnants of gold color on it. The bank has the words STATUE OF LIBERTY in raised lettering on the front at the bottom of the base. Please see Andy and Susan Moore's Book "The Penny Bank Book: Collecting Still Banks" published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd. in 1984 bank number 1164 page 117 for a similar example. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.
Size: Measures ~6 1/8" high with the base being ~2 1/4" by ~2 1/4". The piece weighs about 13 ounces.
Maker: A. C. Williams US.
Marks: No marks on the outside and we no marks on the inside that we could identify.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice example of cast iron figural penny banks, which would display very well and make a nice addition to your collection.
Condition: The bank is in good used condition with no cracks, breaks, or repairs. It appears to be all original. We opened the bank and we could see the gold coloring on the inside but did not see any markings. The bank retains quite a bit of its original paint (~80%) with losses, which can be seen in the photos. The only thing we see is the fact that two opposing corners of the base are higher than the two other corners so the bank rocks when put on a solid flat base. Other than that, the bank is in very good condition. Because of the issue with the corners, we outline here we are selling the bank AS IS at a fraction of its true value. Please view photos carefully for additional condition information.
