Three Staffordshire house moneyboxes (coin banks). c.1870-1920.


Availability: In stock

Three Staffordshire earthenware moneyboxes (coin banks). The group includes two cottages and a Bank building.

The bank building is shown (with different colour schemes) in both Stoddard p.152, pl.734 rated “B”, and Huebner vol.1 p.39, pl.126 rated “D”. With dates given as 1920 and 1900.

The tiny cottage is shown in Huebner vol.1 p.41, pl.137 “1870 rated ‘C'”, and Stoddard p.151, pl.727 “1870 rated ‘D'”. Pat Halfpenny (English Earthenware Figures, p.288, pl.77)  illustrates a page from the catalogue of the William Kent factory in Staffordshire, which shows the same model being reproduced into the first half of the C20th. The moneybox listed for sale here has pink lustre decoration rather than gold, which is apparently an indicator of an earlier product.

The two chimney large cottage moneybox is illustrated in Huebner vol.3 p.103, pl.47 “1925 ‘C'”, and also Stoddard p.152, pl.729 “1900 ‘B'”.
