This is a cast iron buffalo for Amherst Stoves. It measures about 8 inches long and 5 inches tall. It is made of cast iron so quite heavy weigh over 3 pounds. It is solid and in good shape. The Amherst Stove appears on both sides of the buffalo. I wish I knew more about it. I know when my grandmother died there were quite a few cast iron pieces and have wondered if they were her fathers. My mother was not sure of its history either except that she remembered it growing up. She often referred to it as a bank. It does have a screw on one side that might be used to open but have never tried that.
