    Hello everyone!!
    A recent find of mine was this cast iron penguin still bank. It's nicely painted and well detailed. I've seen this design many times over, on a much smaller scale, and not in the form of a still bank. This one measures 7 1/8" tall and 5 7/8" wide and weighs nearly 4lbs. Not sure of the age of this one, but it's most likely from the 1970's.

    Thank you all very much for stopping in for a look!!
    Scott

      I have his little brother in ceramic. It's an old Japan bank. Thought I showed it, but I guess not. Will have to clean it up and post it.

      Lori is right! He has the look of a real penguin!
      His expression and stance are perfect!

      Thanks Eileen!!
      I rarely see penguins when treasure hunting. And not only did I get lucky and find this one, but in the form of a still bank, which made it an even better find!!
