Made by the J. & E. Stevens Company Cromwell, Ct. - Circa 1899 The Chief Big Moon bank is one of Charles Bailey’s greatest triumphs for the Stevens Company. Once again, we find his penchant for meticulous detail very much in evidence. In particular, note the complexity of the hieroglyphics that appear on the teepee and the pictograms that can be read so clearly and easily on the base even though they are extremely shallow. In his lifetime, Charles Bailey’s work to create these exquisite cast iron wonderments went unmatched. He was the best that ever was. This specimen retains magnificent bright color. It’s a true showstopper!
