This bank was produced in the early twenties by the Kilgore Manufacturing Co. This example has fantastic original paint with deep rich color and good gloss; there is no overpaint or touchup and there have been no repairs. Please note: there is a miniscular tight hairline at the mouth hinge point. This is an almost universal flaw for this bank and has no structural significance. Kilgore only produced 5 banks and all were designed by Elizabeth Cook, a well know artist and sculptress. The action is simple: push the lever under the frog’s mouth and he will open his mouth to swallow the coin. Please check out all the other banks and toys I have listed and will continue to list for several weeks.
