A collectable vintage elephant money box/piggy bank, made in Germany for Dresdner Bank.

Design attributed to Luigi Colani, however I believe the design was designed by Bernd Diefenbach in 1972. They were designed for the Dresdner Bank, Germany, and this example is stamped to the base with the name of the bank. Later examples had Commerzbank written on them (the more recent name of the bank). This example is also stamped near the slot with 'BHI Bank fur handel und industrie'. This is vintage - circa 1970s. This iconic collectable elephant is also known as 'Drumbo'.

A deep orange or 'tomato red' glossy formed plastic. Apx 6.5cm high x 8.5cm long - smaller sized. These mark easily, and crack, but this example is excellent with a great shine.

Suitable for display in a kids' bedroom or as a collectable with other Drumbos, or just as a iconic minimalist ornament. These were designed for kids' savings and were sealed closed and had to be broken to empty - meaning this has never been used.

Includes P&P to the UK.

Absolutely love this little vintage pottery fish money box. Exactly what we were looking for - it looks super cute and will complete the aquatic theme in a newly decorated room. It arrived quickly and was very well packaged. Great service from CocoCollectables, will shop there again :)

I love this piece! I was looking at it for some time and decided to go for it. It sits in my window and catches the light beautifully, looking like melting ice. The quality is wonderful and it arrived quickly and well packaged. I highly recommend this seller!
