Ben Franklin Bank/Houdon
This bank is an excellent reminder that "A penny saved is a penny earned..."
Our Benjamin Franklin bank was
produced exclusively for the Philadelphia
Museum of Art and is adapted from a
marble bust sculpted in 1779 by the
French artist, Jean-Antoine Houdon
(1741-1828). The sculpture is considered
the most famous lifetime image of the
great statesman, Freemason, scientist and inventor.
This bank is a delightful and utilitarian
display piece, and is made of cast marble
(crushed marble bonded with polymer
resins), with a coin-slot at the back. The
base has a felt bottom and unscrews for
easy coin removal.
