The Jolly cast iron child's penny bank created by Shepherd Hardware Co. 1882 typifies the racist American culture early post Civil War. By placing a coin in the figure's hand and pressing a lever on the back he will swallow the coin while his eyes roll upwards. Although mass produced in Buffalo, New York late 19th century the figure has become highly collectible and the market has been flooded with reproductions over the years. One of the finest Jolly Nier Banks I've seen.
