A.C. Williams ca. 1900-1931 Cast Iron Skyscraper Still Penny Coin Bank USB Pre-Lit 5.5″ for Sale


Antique ca. 1900-1931 A.C. Williams Cast Iron Skyscraper Still Penny Coin Bank 5.5″

This beautiful “Sky-Scraper” cast iron still bank was manufactured between 1900 and 1931 by A.C. Williams of Ravenna, Ohio. This skyscraper bank is all that is good with early American penny banks. It is well made, iconic in style, and does its job for storing pennies.

Though it may not be as big or glitzy as others, it is the second largest in this set of banks. We thought we would make this bank more exciting for the modern collector and we have added some fairy lights on a USB plug cord. These can be removed if you wish, we just thought they would be fun.

This piece is in very good all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. This piece is approximately 2 ½” L x 2 ½” W x 5 ½” H. This would be a great addition to any architectural or still bank collection. We encourage you to examine the photographs to further determine the condition and quality.



A brief history of A.C. Williams Co. of Ravenna, Ohio:     

The A. C. Williams Company was founded in business in Chagrin Falls, Ohio in 1844. It was founded by John Wesley Williams, the father of A. C. Williams. However, there was a big fire at the company, and a decision was made to move to Ravenna. Ohio. Actual production started there in 1893.     

Like the other famous cast iron companies of the time (Hubley, Dent, Kilgore, Arcade, Kenton), A.C. Williams manufactured cast iron cars and trucks.  From 1893 to 1923 they produced cast-iron horse-drawn rigs, autos, airplanes, penny banks, and tractor toys; the line included mostly miniatures distributed through Woolworth, Kresge`s, and other five-and-dime stores. They even produced some tin cars towards the end of the company’s relatively long history. Unfortunately, in 1938 they closed their toy production and continued in other ventures to this day.
