Fabulous Black Americana Iron Mechanical Bank 1882

You are bidding on an original movable 1882 Black Negro Bank, made by the Shepard Hardware Co Buffalo, NY.. The hand that feeds his mouth is Missing-Broken off. It appears to have been gone for many many years. The eyes roll back, the tongue moves when the lever is pushed bringing up the arm. He is missing two screws behind his ears although the 2 pieces of his head are tight no movement the bank is solid, not falling apart - but has still retained much of the original paint. Marked on the bottom and back with dates ect . He is heavy & I guess he is made of cast iron, close to 5 lbs, and is just under 7 inches tall. I guarantee this to not be a reproduction. This came from an 1880s estate. Although the hand is missing, it is a great old piece of Black Americana that has changed so much to todays standards. Please see my other auctions .
