Here for your consideration is a beautiful Lion and Monkeys cast iron mechanical bank in excellent working condition. This bank was manufactured by Kyser & Rex in Frankford PA. And patented on 7/17/ 1883. This example has excellent paint with some light scuffs/scratches consistent with its age; the grass all around the bottom of the bank is stunning, among the best I have seen. Both monkeys are original as are the Lion’s glass eyes. The coin trap is missing. Great action and scale (over 9″tall): “Place a coin in the monkey’s hand, and touch a spring at the root of the tree. The monkey throws a coin at the Lion who opens his mouth and dexteriously catches it, while the young monkey jumps up on his mother’s shoulders to see the fun. Smooth, strong action on this bank and working well. Please study the photos and ask any questions, I will try to answer promptly.
