Cast iron novelty banks like this skeleton were extremely popular from 1870-1900 and this working replica shows why. They weren’t the most flawless functioning toys in their day, but were durable and awesome to collect and play with.

Our turn of the century style skull has been sand cast in heavy iron and hand painted just like the originals were. A lever behind the bust controls the simple movement of the outstretched hand and eye. The closed eye opens as the hand raises to take in your haunted earnings. This Skeleton is not exactly Fort Knox with all the bony openings, but a fun, eerie conversation piece.
