The banks are being listed with. And a reasonable starting price. The owner of the banks has reluctantly decided to part with much of his collection and continues that tonight. This is the “TWO FROGS” Mechanical Bank c1882 manufactured by the J. And designed by James Bowen. There are no cracks, breaks or other damage and the bank is in e. This is one of the few “Two Frog’s” banks that has an. Almost all of the legs are later replacements. The last picture is from an ad in Ehrich’s Quarterly in the winter of 1882. At that time it was referred to as the “Bullfrog Bank”. To operate, a coin is placed on the coin rest held by the front legs of the frog lying on its back. The lever in back of the large frog is then pressed down. This causes the movable leg of the prone frog to kick the coin from its rest as the large frog opens his mouth and the coin is deposited. Releasing the lever causes the moving parts to return to their original position. The bank is in proper working order and has the typical Stevens coin plug. The size is approximately 8 1/2″ long, 3 1/2″ wide and 4 1/2 high. This distinctive bank will make a great addition to your collection.
