Small Child's Novelty Soft Paste Porcelain Money Box Antique c1860.

This sweet little money box is made of moulded soft paste porcelain and dates to around the 1850s or 60s. Depicting a child peeking out from the laundry basket it has a hole on the top for coins, but no hole at the base to get them out again! Therefore this was probably intended for a small child to break open once full. It is offered in good condition overall.

Dimensions: 6.5 x 7 x 4.5 cm or 2.6 x 2.8 x 1.8 inches.

Weight: 118 grams or 76 penny weight.
