Small earthenware moneybox with brown treacleware glaze (‘Rockingham’ type glaze). In the form of a chest of drawers with eight drawers. The flat back has a ‘nipple’ of clay where the back was pierced with an air hole (now covered with glaze). Press-moulded in two halves with rudimentary feet on base. Hand-cut coin slot on top.
This model is not found in STODDARD or any of the HUEBNER books and must therefore be considered as rare, probably rated D-E. Certainly British, but could originate from Staffordshire or possibly Scotland.
Pot ID: AP/1076

The coin slot has been damaged by removal of coins (chunk of rear edge missing). Glaze chips on rear left edge of bank. Scratches, minor wear, plus some micro flea-bites here and there.
