J. & E. Stevens Company Cromwell, Ct. - Late 1880’s The Dentist Bank is another from the series of pedestal banks. The narrative action plays out like a great theatrical production, albeit, on a tiny miniaturized stage. Put your coins in the dentist’s coat pocket. Press the lever and watch as he attempts to extract a very resistant tooth. Suddenly, the chair snaps in half and the patient tumbles backwards, his arms flailing in the air. The dentist also tips backwards as the coin rolls into the gasbag.
