Important J & E Stevens Company Antique Cast Iron Novelty Bank
Patented June 29th, 1872 and October 23rd, 1873.
J & E Stevens Company of Cromwell, Connecticut manufactured Charles H. Johnson’s Novelty Bank in many color patterns, and this handsome red, yellow, and blue variation is a real stunner. This is a terrific Novelty Bank from the beginnings of the great age of mechanical banks and will be a fine addition to any collection of antique banks, early toys, or American antiques. Beautiful original paint. Missing only a spring to position the figure. Mechanism in excellent condition. A wonderful original example of a rare and desirable bank.
