Great WWII vintage figural sailor bank from Seamen’s Bank for Savings. The figure is a walking sailor carrying his bag over his shoulder and his bag features a slot for coins. The base of the bank is lined with cork and reads: “THE SEAMEN’S BANK FOR SAVINGS” and the reverse of the bank shows: “SBS” imprinted in the ceramic.
Approximately 5-7/8” x 5-1/2”
Ceramic, paint, cork, ink
“SBS”, “THE SEAMEN’S BANK FOR SAVINGS”
This is from an advertising collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBJX15 LABEX SHJX2/16
8+ (Excellent): The bank shows minor to moderate wear, plug is missing, and much of the cork remains on the base, overall excellent condition.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
