Delightful antique Victorian era Austrian or Vienna bronze style coin box or child's piggy bank, a cold painted dog house with mom & puppies! Ashley found this one at an antique market in Chatou on our last trip over to Paris. She's actually more a cat person now but thought it was just too darling to pass up. I've held off on listing it because we originally thought it was an Austrian bronze but, on further inspection, it appears to be cold or tole painted white metal. As charming as can be nonetheless and a wonderful addition to a Vienna bronze collection (at a fraction of the price surely).
Good condition, age and materials considered. There is paint loss, as you can see in the images, and the 'hinge' has separated. The small brass lock is locked and there is no key. See pictures for measurements.
