Regular price €140

A beautiful French antique figural money box dating to the early 20th century. It features Saint Joan of Arc wearing armor. It has been decorated with fleur de lis and the helmet displays Lorraine cross. The majolica bank has a glossy glaze.
Still bank were popular in the 19th century and still during the begining of the 20th century, and were generally made for children. These banks were meant to be broken in order to retrieve the money, so it's rare to find these banks in such condition. The coin slot is on the helmet that shows the name André.

Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description. Very good antique condition, only tiny glaze chips. It has been numbered on the underside.
