    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: Teddy and the Bear Mechanical Bank. Cast iron mechanical bank titled "Teddy, and the Bear". It measures 10" across x 7" high. The action of the bank consists of Teddy Roosevelt firing a rifle at a large tree stump. When the coin drops into a slot in the hollow of the tree, a trap door at the top of the tree opens and a bear emerges. TR's head is hinged to provide a nodding motion. Painted green, gold, brown and yellow. It retains a high percentage of the original paint. These have been reproduced, but this is an original.
