Hubley Cast Iron Mechanical Trick Dog Bank *SOLD*
Hubley Cast Iron Mechanical Trick Dog Bank
Our Trick Dog Bank is an extremely clean bank dating from the 1920s and 1930s. This design utilizes the design conceived by Mr. Daniel Cooke, a New Jersey inventor which was patented in 1888. Shepartd Hardware of Buffalo NY begin the toy’s production in a different variation. This Hubley variation was redesigned and arguably more robust.
Wholesale pricing “in the day” for the Trick Dog by Hubley was $7.50 per dozen!
Our toy has a white face, highlights in red and yellow for face coloration, black boots, and dark black clothing. The base is a light blue with beautiful gold trim.
Press the side base lever and it releases a latch. The dog then springs forward on an arc (with coin in mouth). It jumps through the hoop and then deposits the coin in the cast iron barrel with locked safe and lid (a trap). The dog then gets reset by pulling back its body and lever arm and latching it back into place.
Condition on the Bank is all original with original paint, but the trap has been replaced with a proper replacement key.
