Polychrome Artillery Bank

Lot 0005
Made by J. & E. Stevens Company Cromwell, Ct. - Mid 1890’s Provenance: Markey Collection; Upon its release, the Artillery Bank found an immediate audience with children. Its action is so exciting that, even today, children cannot resist playing with it over and over. Pull the cannon hammer down and place a coin inside the cannon. Simultaneously, the officer’s arm rises up. When the lever is pressed, the coin is jettisoned from the cannon. It sails through the air and is deposited in the fort tower. The officer’s arm has also gone down, as if he has given the command to fire. Wisely, the Stevens Company offered the Artillery Bank with either a Union or Confederate soldier. Rather extraordinary, considering the Civil War had been waged nearly three decades before their production run for this bank. We believe this to be the finest known specimen of the Artillery Bank with Confederate Officer.

Condition
