Original Elephant Howdah (Man Pops Out) Cast Iron Mechanical Bank

Enterprise Mfg. Co., Philadelphia PA

Circa 1880: One of only two mechanical banks manufactured by Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania’s Enterprise Manufacturing Company, famous for their
production of painted coffee grinders and other cast iron accessories, the
Elephant Howdah (Man Pops Out) bank brought to the child’s imagination the
exotic east Indian culture where people trained the gargantuan pachyderm
and harnessed its legendary might as a symbol of their own power and
wealth. This neat antique American mechanical bank works perfectly, has no
chip, cracks, or repairs, and is decked in completely original and
untouched paint decoration. This is a perfect starter bank on which
beginning collectors can wet their whistles.
