The banks are being listed with no reserve. The owner of the banks has decided to part with much of his collection and he continues that tonight. This is the ” LION AND TWO MONKEYS” Mechanical Bank designed by Louis Kyser and Alfred Rex and manufactured by the Kyser & Rex Co. It was patented on July 17, 1883. This is a rather large and impressive bank with classic detail and an interesting subject. There are no cracks or breaks and the paint is still. The bank is in excellent plus condition and displays handsomely. The paint on the lion is particularly strong and the base has beautiful highlights. The last picture is from Ehrich’s Quarterly, Winter 1883 catalogue. To operate, a coin is placed in the right hand of the front monkey. On depressing the operating lever, the hand and arm of the monkey lowers, dropping the coin toward the lion whose mouth opens to receive it. As this action takes place, the baby monkey moves upward and forward on the other monkey’s back and looks down fearlessly at the lion. It has very clever action, and on releasing the lever all parts automatically return to their original position. The bank is in proper working order and has the rectangular coin trap. The key is included. The bank is approximately 9″ long, 3 1/2″ wide and 9 1/2 high. This is a great opportunity to make this. Bank a part of your collection.
