Original Cast Iron Santa Claus Mechanical Bank

Circa 1889: Buffalo, New York's Shepard Hardware Company manufactured a bevy of classic mechanical banks, and the iconic Santa Claus standing at the chimney remains one of its most popular and endearing creations. Although the figure's movement is very simple, no child could grow tired of good old Saint Nick dropping the gift of money down the chimney chute. This 19th century mechanical bank is completely original with no chips, cracks, or repairs, boasts very fine original paint with no touch-ups, and has great cross over appeal into several areas of collecting, thus making an example of this quality highly desirable and especially difficult to find on the open market.
