Will Ship worldwide please ask for a quote.
1897 J.E. Stevens "Always Did "Spise a Mule"
A serious collector of mechanical banks should enjoy this
fine specimen! A recent acquisition from an estate, it is in "as
found" condition and is as good as they get! It is in near perfect working
condition, with no replacement parts. The patent date on the base is Apr. 27,
1897. When lever is depressed near the
mule's rear foot, he swings around and kicks the boy in the head.
The boys seat can flip backwards by moving his seat to
unhinge the lever. However he does not flip by the force of the mule kick, I
manually moved the seat myself to accomplish the flipping of the boy.
There were two
versions of this bank; ours is the "boy on a bench" version.
Dimensions of the bank are: 5 7/8" tall to the top of the mules ears,
10" long, and 2 15/16" wide. If you have been looking to upgrade your
own "Always Did 'Spise a Mule bank or are a collector looking to add this
to your collection, this is one to be proud of!
