Metal Bank(ID: A23797)
Created by Mary Ann Owen and Malcolm Owen
This piece is not guaranteed to make you money but it can help you save some in a fun way! The tiny, cast, sterling silver figures are trying to move around real US currency in hopes that you'll add some of your own. The ladder is fabricated from sterling silver and the body of the bank is copper. Coins and bills may be inserted into a slot on the top of the bank and a cover plate may be removed for access to your cash. The entire piece is immersed in a liquid sulfurated potash solution to produce a dark patina and once dry, it is waxed and the coins and figures are polished. The bank may be used as a tzedakah box.
