Antique American Folk Art Sculpture 19th Century Carved by Hand Fat Man Tammany Bank collection Jim Linderman
A hand carved antique folk art sculpture which replicates the J. & E. Stevens cast iron bank which was patented in 1878. The cast iron toy was designed by John Hall and was sold as The Tammany Bank. The folk art carving is larger than the commercial toy, and functions as a bank too! Metal coin slot, moving arm, original paint decoration. This folk art sculpture is twice the size of the bank toy, and is an accurate and accomplished construction.
