Excellent functioning condition and original (Teddy and the Bear) mechanical bank circa 1906. Teddy famously participated in the big game hunt and after no bears were found one was tired to a tree and Teddy Roosevelt famously looked and the bear seeing it was injured and refused to shoot it feeling it would be unsportsmanlike. Probably J. & E. Stevens Company, Connecticut. still works, 10" L x 7 1/2" H
