Metal Bank(ID: A23832)
Created by Mary Ann Owen and Malcolm Owen
A tiny scene of book related activity is depicted in this bank. Nine cast sterling silver figures are moving, shelving and enjoying books. The body of the bank is copper with brass legs and accents. The entire piece is colored with a liver of sulfur patina which is waxed to produce a permanent finish. Each piece is made entirely by hand. Variations in patina and figure placement are considered normal.
