J & E Stevens Cast Iron Eagle & Eaglets Mechanical Bank
J. & E. Stevens Co., designed by Charles Henn, patented 1883 - this is the Eagle and Eaglets cast iron mechanical bank. You place a coin in the eagles beak, press the lever in the back, and the coin is dropped into the nest as the eagle raises its wings and the little birds move up and down. A great action bank - and good looking too. This one is is in wonderful original condition - as seen in the pictures. A couple of tells on condition quality is the amount of paint on the small eaglets, and the amount of paint on the lever. As you can see, the bank shows just minor wear as pictured. I see no breaks or cracks. Mechanism works well. Don't know if the eyes are original or not. Don't miss this one for your collections. Please bid early. Buyer pays shipping (Insurance is included in the shipping and handling fees for an estimate of $1500). Please check out my other items currently listed, and save on shipping. NO RESERVE.
