Item Description: Rare opportunity to own a one of a kind Gonder piece. This Large Sheriff Bank was produced using the mold for the Gonder Original #950 Sheriff Cookie Jar. The lid has been fused to the base and a hole has been cut into the lid creating the opening for the bank. Oddly, there is no hole in the bottom making this bank non functional. Unmarked so I assume this was an end of the day piece or piece made by Gonder as a presentation/gift piece. Approx 10.5" high.
This is the exact piece shown in the guide by Boshears, "Gonder Ceramic Arts: A Comprehensive Guide". I purchased this piece from a long time collector shortly after that guide was published in 2001. The Boshears guide assigns no value to this piece due to it's rarity.
Condition: Excellent condition. One 1/8" flake on the underside of one pistol. Minor nick on the corner of the vest. Minor nick or glaze miss on the moustache. Minor crazing. The opening of the bank was done after the piece was cast and is obviously hand made and the glaze hand applied. Minor crazing. I can provide photos of these areas if you so require.
Shipping: FREE shipping to lower 48 US states. Items are well packed and shipped via UPS which includes free item tracking and insurance.
About me: Avid Gonder collector and author of TheGonderCollector.com website. I am selling many of my Gonder pieces - mostly duplicates - but some one of a kind pieces. Please check back often for new inventory.
