Beautiful antique mechanical bank. It comes from a collector and was very well taken care off. It has no missing pieces and works perfectly. The detail on this piece is incredible! The creator of this bank is John and Elisha Stevens. The company was located in Cromwell, Connecticut and specialized in the manufacture of cast iron toys in 1843 and in 1869 made the first cast iron bank. This is a gorgeous Eagle & Eaglets Mechanical Bank. On the bottom is PAT Jan 23 1883. On the round coin trap it has Feb 1875 PAT. The measurements are approximately 6.5″ tall, 8″ long, and 4.5 wide. To operate the mechanical bank place a coin into the mother Eagles beak; twist the snake form lever in the back; the baby Eaglets open their beaks as if being fed and the coin will drop down into the nest.
