This century old "Book of Thrift" is actually a vintage, metal coin bank from the 1920s.  Most likely a promotional item from banks given out to store money at home. 

This one has a gorgeous green color and is in very good condition considering the age. Definitely some scratches, but all adds to the beauty and patina of this piece.

Does not have a key, but more than likely can be picked open. There is no money inside (sorry. we checked!)

Writing on the front reads "Farmers & Merchants Bank. Lodi, California. 'Owned by Home Folks'".

Writing on the side reads "Bankers Utilities Co. San Francisco. Patented July 3, 1923).

A lovely piece that we considered keeping for ourselves before letting it go to our amazing customers. 

Sold-as is.  

Dimensions: ~ 4.5" x 3.25" x 1"
