Magic Bank Cast Iron Antique Mechanical Bank

Incredible Untouched Condition

Circa 1876:┬áThe J. & E. Stevens Company of Cromwell, Connecticut manufactured Henry W. Prouty’s Magic Bank in a number of color variations, and this handsome light green version is a real stunner. This bank is interesting because it accepts coins in two ways: mechanically via the cashier on the reverse side of the bank’s entrance and manually through a coin slot on the bank’s roof. The Magic bank is almost always found with a cracked roof, but this example comes to the market with no, chips, cracks, or repairs, a truly outstanding untouched paint decorated surface, and fine action. It has taken us years to locate a Magic bank in such excellent condition, and we are sure the new owner of this lovely centennial era mechanical bank will be more than satisfied to own this wonderful example of 19th┬ácentury Americana.
