Kilgore Cast Iron Owl Mechanical Bank

Circa 1926: Standing just under 6" in height, Kilgore's Owl mechanical bank was designed by sculptor M. Elizabeth Cook for the important Westerville, Ohio, toy company. The slot in book variation of this bank is more difficult to find than the slot in head variant, and this one retains over 80% of its original paint (no touch-ups or repairs) and its original nickel plated coin trap, which is often missing. The bank has a very simple but endearing movement: its eyes blink up and down when a coin is pressed into is slot.
