Antique Cast Iron Stump Speaker Mechanical Bank

Shepard Hardware Company, Buffalo, New York

Circa 1886: Designed by Charles Shepard and Peter Adams Jr., the Stump Speaker is perhaps the greatest Black Americana mechanical bank ever produced. The Stump Speaker, adorned with his tiny and comical tophat and bright green suit, stands on a four by five inch grey, red and gold base. On the base sits a brown carpet bag which opens when lever is pressed as coin placed in the Stump Speaker's extended hand falls into it. Simultaneously, his mouth starts moving, and his imaginary speech begins. Patented June 8, 1886, this super colorful antique mechanical bank's clever action has delighted folks for 130 years This example, free of chips, cracks, and repairs, and has excellent original paint.
