Elephant Chalkware Pottery Bank - Made in Japan - 1960s - handpainted.


A cute little chalkware pottery elephant bank from Japan. Whimsically hand painted. No chips or cracks that I can notice, check photos before buying to see for yourself. Small recession on top to hold coins while to pluck them one at a time into the slot. Hole for adding rolled up dollar bills / paper currency to the side. Intact plug on bottom comes off easily and has no cracks. Needs a little cleanup to be a lovely display piece again. As found in the barns of Kansas.


6.0" x 3.25" x 3.0"
(15.24cm x 8.25 cm x 7.62cm)

Another fine vintage item from Steamcrunk.
