This is a vintage, original cast iron mechanical bank of a lion and monkeys. This bank is 9 1/8″ long and 8 3/4″ tall. There are NO cracks, breaks or chips. It is missing the little top monkey, one glass Lion’s eye, the Lion’s tail and the bottom door. The mechanical function works well. When the lever is turned, the Lion’s mouth opens and closes and the monkey’s arm sockets turn, which would flip the little monkey forward. Has partial original paint. Great item to display as is, or complete it with the parts needed. Heavy, 4 1/2 pounds of cast iron.
