You are offerding on a c1910 John Harper cast iron Jolly
Ni*ger Mechanical bank. Made by John Harper, they were England’s foremost
producer of still and mechanical banks. It has 95% of its fantastic paint, hand
painted brown eyes, red shirt, white collar andyellow “butter fly” shaped tie,
has anice patina.Has “JOLLY NI**ER BANK” embossed on the back "Made in England" stamped on the bottom plate. The
mechanics work perfectly except for the fact that the leaver to operate it is
missing. Needs replacement, I see parts banks semi regularly so it wouldn’t be hard
to acquire.There are no cracks, chips or breaks of any kind other than any stated. The seams are tight, the
pieces align well, has the original strait screws in the ears/back. 6
1/2"” tall x 4 5/8”. Listed in the new “The

IF YOU PAY BEFORE I SEND A COMBINED INVOICE, I MAY NOT NOTICE THAT YOU OVER PAID FOR SHIPPING.

I suggest to the winner to print a copy of this
sale, it will increase the resale value of your purchase tremendously having
this information as a hard copy along with the bank. You are paying for this
information, make use of it! Plus it’s fun to look back in 20 years and say I
only paid $200 for that way back when. Most of the banks today selling for
$200-$400 were $15-$50 in the mid 1970’s, big money when the reference guides I
have were printed.
