Another rabbit in my collection. This is a reproduction of the A.C. Williams "Begging Rabbit" still bank. It's a nicely done reproduction, but instead of it being made of cast iron, this one is made of cast brass. That's how we know it's a reproduction. The original was made of cast iron and painted gold. I believe this one was cast from the original molds of the cast iron version and the exact dimensions of the original, which was first produced in the very early 1900's. It measures just under 5" tall. Though he's a reproduction I still like him, especially since I only paid $5.00 for him.
Thanks for stopping in for a look!!
