ANTIQUE KYSER & REX “LION & MONKEYS” FIGURAL CAST IRON MECHANICAL BANK. It’s most commonly referred to as “Lion & Monkeys” by collectors and is pictured on page 41 in the. It depicts a pair of monkeys in a tree who throw a coin at a lion who is trying to eat them. The bank stands about 9 3/8″ tall and the base is 9 1/16″ long. It was patented on July 17, 1883. Operation of the bank from early promotional materials. Place a coin in the monkey’s hand, and touch a spring at the root of the tree. The monkey throws the coin at the lion who opens his mouth, and dexteriously catches it, while the young monkey jumps on his mother’s shoulders to see the fun. I’m including a very nice 1880 Indian Head penny for display purposes. And the bank even has a working key (presumed to be original) for the coin trap, something very rarely seen! There are no known reproductions of this bank. It’s guaranteed to be an antique mechanical bank from the late 1800’s. Condition of this Lion & Monkeys mechanical bank is EXCELLENT. The original paint has some loss but very much is still intact. Both of the lion’s glass eyes are present. The bank is complete and functions properly. Overall, this collectible bank looks fantastic and displays well. It would make a fine addition to any collection. Please take a close look at the many photos I’ve provided and judge condition for yourself. See my other listings. For more great items!
