If you are looking for a Christmas present for a young child or even for a Carlton Ware collector then the Carlton Ware pottery novelty money boxes are certainly worth considering.
The Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe is a fantastic example from this range of money banks with the actually money box moulded into the shape of a boot. On the front the design features a house (in the shape of the boot) with lots of little people standing at the windows and waving.
This money bank is brightly coloured and stands approximately 13cm tall (not quite as big as a real boot!). Currently all our Carlton Ware pottery prices include FREE UK POSTAGE & PACKAGING so be sure to order in plenty of time for Christmas!
It’s always difficult to come up with ideas for presents for little ones or indeed for adults with Retro styles – so what better than one of the money boxes from the range of retro money banks that Carlton Ware produced around the 1970’s?
With their vibrant colours and wacky designs these money boxes are a perfect gift. This particular one has been decorated with the Noah’s ark pattern in a vibrant blue colour. It bears the Carlton Ware script pottery mark on its base and has a clear plastic stopper in its base (to stop those pennies from escaping!).
The Carlton Ware pottery produced a whole range of novelty retro money banks decorated in bright and vivid colours. The range included a Train, Cat, Owl and Noah’s Ark to name just a few – this particular money box is Noah’s Ark and has been decorated in blue. It shows three animals, a lion, giraffe and elephant looking out of the windows on Noah’s Ark!
On its base it has its plastic stopper (so all your money can’t fall out!) and the Carlton Ware pottery script pottery mark. These date from the 1970’s and are really fantastic in design and decoration.
