Made by Shepard Hardware Buffalo, NY - Circa 1886 The Stump Speaker Bank lampoons a black man as a silly dandy dressed in absurdly colorful clothes, a caricature that relates him to the carpetbagger phenomenon that arose in in the South at the end of the Civil War. Carpetbaggers were opportunistic northern businessmen who bought up plantations for a mere pittance of their real value. You must be careful because this elegant dude possesses a smooth speaking style that can talk you out of your pennies.
