A beautiful and impressive bank this example has excellent and all original first paint and no repairs or damage to any of the cast iron. A great bank, the Clown On Globe was produced by J&E Stevens Co. And patented on May 20, 1890. A “wind up” mechanism and multiple actions make this one of the most exciting and fun of all the mechanicals: lift the lever to lock the bank, then rotate the globe clockwise and allow it to catch. Press the lever down and the clown and globe will whirl around in a very amusing manner. As a bonus, press the little lever behind the clown and he will do a handstand; the bank can spin with the clown in the handstand position as well although unadvisable! Amazing action for a 19th century iron bank. Complete, original, working and retaining the original coin trap, a great addition to any collection. Please ask and questions and I will answer promptly.
