{Vintage} - Japanned Metal Savings Bank (1900-1920s)

Regular price $ 58.00

This japanned metal, book-shaped “secret savings bank” was likely made in the US between the turn of the century and the 1920s. Coin and bill containers like these were often given out when someone opened a savings account.

Japanning, also known as copper flash, was a form of decorative finish that originated in Europe in the 17th century as an imitation of Asian lacquerwork. It remained popular into the 1920s in the US.

The plaque reads “Save something today, save something every day.” The key was manufactured by Eagle Lock Co. of Terryville, Connecticut.

Bank is in working condition; it includes the original key and the door locks and opens.
