Description

I have tried to show this 100% GENUINE ANTIQUE Cast iron “Jolly Black Man” mechanical bank very clearly with photographs of every aspect at every conceivable angle

CONDITION is exactly AS SHOWN I have tried to show this antique Cast iron mechanical banks very clearly with photographs of every aspect at every conceivable angle

100% COMPLETE

He has been damaged and repaired.

Damage was around his neck, now **almost invisible** and he is PERFECT WORKING ORDER.

Retains his RARE original key-locking base with NO KEY but the locking mechanism works and is NOT all seized-up with rust. The key is a simple suitcase key type, so you could likely adapt one to work if you needed to ? 🙂

I have checked the lock mechanism, it moves freely when dismantled, and is fully operational

Guaranteed 100% GENUINE antique EARLY 20th Century British-made Cast Iron “JNB” Mechanical Bank or “Money Box” the 3rd-type “JNB”

AGE = CIRCA 1920

Made in UK by the original inventor & manufacturer Harper & Co. John Harper established his manufacturing business during the 1800’s in Willenhall, Staffordshire, England next to his foundry, Albion Works

The company produced a great number of iron decorative goods, including mechanical & still banks, throughout the latter parts of the 19th Cent & into the early 20th Cent

This bank has NO “reserve” & a start price commensurate with what I feel HE IS WELL WORTH

You can use “Buy It NOW” option (BEFORE start-bid is MET) if you do find the bidding process overly-tedious ?

Approx 95% of ALL alleged “GNB” banks seen for sale are FAKES (Indian made) Modern COPIES sold by the unscrupulous to fool the gullible 🙁

This back GUARANTEED 100% GENUINE for LIFE (Meaning you cannot ask for a refund after you have died)

BID WITH CONFIDENCE my authenticity guarantee covers full refund of price-paid & cost of postage BOTH WAYS
