these has been a gift for children when they've opened a savings book from 1972 onwards...
it's a design by by bernd diefenbach and has been made for several banks over the time
some of them are rare
the form has been made by hoechst in porcelain in different decors as well
and i've seen it in sterling silver which is realy rare to find because they have never been produced to be sold to bank customers
just as a jubilee gift for bank employees after 25years

    Just came across this post that clarifies about the history of this bank (it was actually designed by Bernd Diefenbach in 1972 for Dresdner Bank in Germany):!ELEPHANT-MONEY-BOX/cmbz/F551A8B3-234C-4425-81BF-2F826F84DEDE
