Item/Description: Vintage dog peeing on a fire hydrant RARE huge chalkware coin bank.
This adorable jumbo-sized decorative bank is very rare, with a delightfully amusing and entertaining design that consists of a Cocker Spaniel-like cocoa-colored dog daintily lifting his leg to tinkle on a red fire hydrant.
The coin slot is situated on the back of the dog’s head. There is no hole on the underside of this still bank for removing the coins. The purpose of these types of banks was “forced savings”, and the only way of removing ones “cash stash” was to destroy the bank in order to break it open and claim one’s coins, hence its RARITY, since so few of these have survived intact!

Condition Summary: Very good vintage collectible condition. A handful of surface chips, grazes and paint flecks are present, which is not at all unusual given that this is a 40 to 70 years old chalkware item, and such condition factors are inherent with older chalkware pieces.
