NOW SOLD

 

An unusual collection of money saving boxes in the form of gold-tooled books. Each box is made of leather-covered steel, with panels of brass along the facing sides, one of which can be unlocked and removed to access the money inside. A sprung-toothed slot in their side allows coins to be deposited, and a round hole in the bottom allows rolled bank notes to similarly deposited. The single original key can open any of them.

 

This patented design was manufactured for Lloyds Bank by Taylor Law & Co. Ltd. Birmingham. The bank's logo design on the front of the boxes suggests that they date from the 1920s.
