Description

Again, from my personal collection, this is a very neat old tin litho bank. It is in very nice condition for a piece this age. It is marked Benjamin Franklin Thrift Bank. It has a lever to pull down to add up the total in deposits. It is marked on the top, dimes, nickels and quarters. Each has their own deposit slot. The side has a door that says Door opens at $10.00. On the back, it is marked Louis Marx & Co. 200 Fifth Ave. New York. This is the first that I have seen in this condition. It is very clean and a very neat old piece. It is 4" tall, 2 1/2" wide and 4" deep at the bottom. It is 2 1/2" deep at the top. Ben Franklin on one side with the saying "The small saving is the mother of thrift". The opposite side has a couple of men, wearing suits and hats, the picture of a building (probably a bank, can’t read the writing) and there is a little door that says "Door opens at $10.00. It is rare to find this bank with the door still intact. A very neat, working bank.
