You can always bank on Emerson

Found this cool little (about 4″ in length) item recently at a garage sale.  It’s a Bakelite bank that was given away as a promotion for Emerson TVs.

There’s a place to put a photo (I chose Jimmy Cagney) and a slot on top for coins.  

Wish they still had give-a-ways this stylish these days.

    I have one of these somewhere though I don’t think it’s James Cagney on TV.Don’t have it in that great box through. This looks perfect. Really a great promo for a TV manufacturer. Though I’m also positive mine was a giveaway from a bank.
