Antique Toy Daisy Safe Deposit Bank Cast Metal with Key
A century ago, a child placed a toy hard rubber bear charm and the key to this cast metal toy bank together on a chain to guard the precious coins it contained. Today, the bear (could be a Cracker Jacks toy) still guards the key to this wonderful antique Daisy Safe Deposit coin bank.
I’ve removed the key from the chain long enough to make sure it does lock the bank (it does). It doesn’t do quite as nice a job at unlocking it, but does move the lock mechanism enough to allow the door to open.
The bank measures 3 3/8” high, 2 ½” wide, and 2 ¼” deep. No maker’s mark that I could find.
In excellent condition. Included with the bank is the key … and the bear. Who am I to separate them after a century of togetherness?
