Description: Antique and very nice cast iron bank in the form of a General Electric (GE) early refrigerator. This bank is cast in the form of an early refrigerator with the motor on and coils on top. The front has the shape of a hinged door with the GE logo in its center. This bank was produced in 1930's by the Hubley. The bank is colored in cream or off-white coloring and is composed of two halves held together with a screw. This bank is all original and retains most of its coloring. This bank shows nice details of the refrigerator from the coils on top to the logo on the front. It also shows the hinges for the door as well as the handle. Just very nice and unusual. The slot to insert the coin is on the back, which has multiple holes so you can see your savings grow. This is a very nice looking penny or coin bank in very good condition.
