The cabinet is made with Oregon Juniper which has a attractive grain and has a hand-rubbed wax finish. This durable hand-rubbed finish makes the surface silky smooth and a pleasure to touch. This wood has charater with worm holes and small knots This bank would look great on a desk where it could be viewed from all sides. Juniper is aromatic much like cedar. When you open the bank it smells great.
All of the doors I use in these banks had many years of service in a Post Office and are made of bronze. Many of them are over 100 years old. This one is close. I've rebuilt them, cleaned off the grime and got the locks working smoothly. The beauty of the doors is revealed. They are true works of art nouveau. After cleaning the window I add box number decals that are actual Post Office old stock decals. This old glass may have some chips it but, unless I mention otherwise, these will not be visible from the outside. If you want a box with a specific number I can change the number on the door for an additional $10 charge. There is a three digit limit unless I use a small decal. Then I can get 4 or 5 digits on the window.
There is a coin slot in the top and the bank is about 5 inches wide, 6 inches high and 4 1/4 inches deep.
The combination is included and taped to the bottom of the bank.
They are the perfect gift for anyone, any age. Help a child learn to save, help an adult relive their past or just enjoy the bank as a conversation piece. You'll feel the history every time you use it.
These are heavy so I ship in a medium flat rate box and charge actual shipping cost.
