Vintage Money Bank

R180.00

We’ve sold quite a few of these vintage metal money boxes over the years, but I have to say I think today’s merry duck is probably the nicest example we’ve come across! It’s in great condition and has no signs of wear, except for a small patch of discolouration from where the previous owners stuck a big sticker (see photos)! It’s also really nicely designed – comedic and friendly looking, while at the same time quite minimalist – a delicate balance to achieve! And on top of all of that it has its original key, which is a big bonus! The lock is slightly temperamental and you definitely wouldn’t keep any would-be bank robbers out, but it’s still great (and pretty surprising!) that it hasn’t been misplaced over the years – it’s shows that our wee money box has been really well cared for!

P.S. It seems our money box might be Danish – there’s an identical one for sale on eBay that’s stamped ‘silver plate Denmark’!

Dimensions: 11.5cm long x 7.5cm wide x 13.5cm tall

I have this same duck! I’ve had it since it was a girl. It originally came with a little knitted scarf and hat! Unfortunately I’ve lost the cover for the opening and the key, but my kids love it.

I meant I’ve had it since I was a girl! (The duck was never a girl… :))
