This early Staffordshire bank or money box was made in England in the early part of the 19thC. It features a simple Georgian house flanked by 2 gentlemen with children looking out the second floor windows. It is painted in pratt colors and is very naively done. The money slot is in the roof at the back. It is in excellent condition with a lustrous glaze and is free of any damage or apologies. It is possible that there were repairs made to the grass area under each figure. The number on the base is an old inventory number from its former owner.
It measures 4.5 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 3 inches deep.
This piece is a wonderful example of English ceramic folk art at its finest!
