Original 19th Century Cast Iron Hall's Liliput Mechanical Bank

Patriotic American Color Scheme

Circa 1875: Manufactured just in time for the 1876 Centennial by The J. & E. Stevens Company in Cromwell, Connecticut and designed by John Hall, the Liliput mechanical bank measures a petite 4.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide and takes its name from Jonathan Swift's wildly popular Gulliver's Travels. This bank was offered in many paint schemes, but the patriotic red, white, and blue bank with the yellow teller's window remains the most endearing and classic color combination of this small but enticing architectural mechanical bank. This particular example retains a high percentage of its original paint and has no chips, cracks, repairs, or touch ups.
