Cast Iron Bear & Hive Savings Bank – circa 1940s
This is a heavy solid cast iron Savings Bank. The design is very ornate. In the centre is a bear on its hind legs holding a skep basket beehive within the little bee house, among trees to each side. The cut out word BANK above the skep. The coins are deposited via a slot at the back. There is a square cover that holds the coins.
To empty the coins you unscrew a large screw. If you require more photos to make up your mind, just email us and we will be happy to send you a few JPeg photos back for you to review.
