Description

Crafted by Cleveland’s Gibbs-Connor & Co. during the 1950s, this Indians bank was a hometown favorite. Standing 6-1/2”-tall, the politically incorrect porcelain keepsake showcases "Chief Wahoo" with a toothy grin and bat at the ready. A slot atop the head facilitates coin insertion. An additional hole was made for a decorative feather (which is not included). Moderate surface soiling is offset by an uncracked surface and strong surface colors.
