Jolly Antique Cast Iron Mechanical Bank in Original Paint

Round Holes, Pink Lips, Cast Iron Eyes, Stamped Made in England

Circa 1935-1950:
 Manufactured in England by Sydenham & McOustra (known more commonly as S & M), this cast iron Jolly Black Man mechanical bank retains a high percentage of original paint. The pink lips, bright red jacket, and robin's egg blue tie and buttons make this bank stand out in a collection. Later versions of this Black Americana bank were made with aluminum eyes, but this one has the earlier cast iron eyes. The Jolly bank was made in more varieities by more companies over a longer period of time than any other original mechanical bank, and this testifies to the popularity and marketability of the form. We have had this bank in our personal collection for years and have just decided to put it on the open market for the first time and hope the new owner will enjoy it as much as we have.
