Pewter WINNIE the POOH Bank

Alternate names for this post: Winnie the Pewter. Pooh Bank. OK, that’s all I got! But sometimes the real fun of posting is coming up with the post name.

So, enough of that, let’s take a look at the piece:

Pewter Pooh 002

This little cutie is about 4″ tall and in need of some serious cleaning. I’m not sure if I want to have it shining like new as I kind of like the patina.

This little bank is obviously not for the well-to-do as you wouldn’t get a whole lot of pocket change inside!

Pewter Pooh 005

Bottoms Up!

The first thing I look for in a piggy bank is if the cork or stopper is still inserted. Most banks you find have this part missing, which I feel affects the value and collectibility.

Pewter Pooh 006

It was empty when I got it 😦

I cannot find any information about this bank so do not know how old it is nor can I extrapolate a value. Other metal Pooh banks are being sold on eBay as of the date of this posting for between $20 and $40.
