This Roseville very scarce and early bank measures 5" high by 3.5" across by 2.5" wide. It depicts a Monkey pondering in a restful squatted position, one of Roseville's early and very hard-to-find banks. The Monkey was also made as a flask, which is much more commonly seen than the bank. This early Roseville bank is glazed in a combination of rich, deep brown and amber glazes, in a majolica-style glaze, and finished to a high gloss. The coin slot is located on his back. This bank is unmarked, but unmistakeably Roseville, and well documented in the reference books. This bank is in very good condition, with good restorations to two base edge chips. This bank presents very handsomely! If you collect Roseville objects from the early 1900s, this Monkey bank is a great find!
