Antique Jonah and the Whale Cast Iron Mechanical Bank

Shepard Hardware Co., Buffalo NY

Circa 1890: Designed by Peter Adams, Jr. and produced by Shepard hardware Company of Buffalo, New York, the Jonah and the Whale mechanical bank plays on the famous Old Testament story of Jonah being swallowed by the whale. However, in true comic fashion, this version of the bank depicts Jonah feeding the whale coins and is meant instead to teach children the moral value of saving money. This bank works perfectly, has no chips, cracks, or repairs, and has a truly outstanding completely original and vibrantly painted untouched original surface. This early American Jonah and the Whale mechanical bank is targeted toward the advanced collector who has discerning tastes and wants to stockpile a finer example of this classic bank.
