    Another interesting bank to add to the collection. In perfect condition. I looked inside with a flashlight (paper money doesn't rattle, lol!) but it is well and truly empty. :-))))) The black stopper is in there so tight I thought it best to not even try to remove it. Many years ago, when my son was about three or four, I bought him a dinosaur & baby savings bank for what is now 50 cents. A few months later, my son came to me with the bank and said something was inside. Sure enough, there were bills to the tune of what is now $100.00. Someone had folded two (old money) 100 Guilder notes until they were very narrow and then shoved them up the neck of the dinosaur. Who knows how long that money might have been there!

    "Tremar Pottery

    Tremar is a village two miles north of Liskeard in eastern Cornwall. In the early 1960s Roger and Doreen Birkett set up Tremar Pottery there.

    Roger produced hand-thrown domestic ware that sold well, especially to summer tourists who visited the pottery. The company expanded and by the mid-1970s was operating from three sites. Production had changed to mainly moulded wares, and the Birketts saw that there was a good market for 'collectables'. They produced small animals, people, vehicles, boats and buildings, with invitations on the boxes for the buyer to collect the whole set. Perhaps these were the forerunners of Winter cottages, Colourbox and even Beanie Babies!

    In the mid-1980s a combination of various economic factors caused the demise of the company."

    Thanks for stopping by!

      That's cute. I don't see many Tremar banks, just animal figures.

      I can't finish the read until I say..Woo..hoo.
      That being said even when I sneak a peek at CW on my work computer which I can now never do again (they have total access) your finds amaze me.!!
      OK I'm going to go read. :) And look and love until my laptop falls over. :)
