Lot 0268
Made by Mechanical Novelty Works circa 1880's of New Britain, Connecticut. This is an exceptionally rare Mechanical Bank. The imagery for this impressive bank seems to reference the bizarre initiating rights of the Odd Fellows. When the plunger is pressed, the goat butts the young man in the behind, causing him to fall forward and drop the coin into the frog’s mouth. Made of Cast Iron. Works well. Excellent Condition.
