English Penny Bank Floral Heater in Cast Iron


English Penny Bank- Floral Heater in Cast Iron

Our Japanned penny bank is an old English treasure.   Japanning took natural metal colors and often tinted it with a red or black varnish like wash.  Here we get darker black and bronze Japanning.

European techniques use varnishes that have a resin base, similar to shellac, applied in heat-dried layers which are then polished, to give a smooth glossy finish. It can also come in reds, greens and blues.

Then as stated before, our example takes the shape of a primitive turn-of-the century heater.  The floral pattern and detailing is just exquisite.  The provenance on this is also outstanding.
