1930s era Tin Globe bank by Ohio Art - Cartographer Kermit Bishop

This great bank dates to the mid 1930's. It is a tin litograph with the words "AS YOU SAVE - SO YOU PROSPER" on the base. This was produced by Ohio Art and Kermit Bishop was the cartographer.

This little guy is slightly larger than others of this age and type that I have found!! It carries a very detailed map with theTropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the International Date Line and airplane routes which are shown using a small red plane! The bank also has a compass rose in the North Pacific Ocean. This bank still has the original trap which is a hinged door and was only produced for a short period of time!!! I do not have the original key and the door is locked. However it does open using a screwdriver to turn the lock!!! The bank is approximately 4" diameter and 4 1/2 " high with a 3 1/2" base

I dated this using the following: Italian East Africa (1936-1941) Manchukuo and Chosen. Both being Japanese occupied (1932-1945)

The condition of this bank is fair. The colors are bright and vivid. However there is a great deal of scratching throughout the globe with someing staining on the base and some light oxidation!! There are also one or two small dents. I have tried to show the worst in my pictures. However, with all that said, this is still a great piece of history and something this old is bound to show its age!!!

This is a really unique bank!! There are plenty of the newer ones around with their red bases and the same slogan but very few of these!!

A must have for the collector!!

As always, ENJOY!!!
