The
Chrysler Collection
of
MECHANICAL and STILL BANKS

offered by
DAVID HOLLANDER
  Antiques for Collectors 
5806 Mosholu Avenue
Riverdale 71, New York City
   
Telephone KIngsbridge 9-8409

Is proud to offer the following collection of
MECHANICAL and STILL BANKS
formed by
The Late Walter P. Chrysler
and
Walter P. Chrysler, Jr.

       Most bank collectors are familiar with this notable collection. Actually, it was the pioneering of the Chrysler Collection among the other early collectors that started this tremendous interest in this absorbing field.
        In offering this collection, I would like to say that as far as I know this is the first time such a collection has been offered intact at a cash price for individual specimens. I mention these facts as proof of the genuineness of these banks. I have always known this collection and have sold some of these same banks to the Messers Chrysler. We have put small tags on each so they may always be so identified.
        These banks are all offered subject to prior sale, all prices are net. While we have duplicates of many, there is only one of each of the rarities, and so it would help if you made second choices. I suggest you order promptly and orders with checks receive first priority. Any bank may be returned if not satisfactory for full refund, providing it is returned within five days after receipt, and is in the same condition as when sold. All orders shipped Express collect unless otherwise designated.
       I do not wish my good friends in the banking world to have any hurt feelings. There is nothing reserved for anyone, and nothing will be sold until 3 P.M., April 2, 1955.


        There are over 450 still banks that are also for sale, a great many iron stills and semi mechanical banks, pottery, porcelain and glass. Also many quaint and unusual banks and money boxes. These are very difficult to list, as the forms and sizes are too varied for a brief listing. We would be happy to have you visit our shop and see for yourself, and if you have any specialty we could describe some by mail.
        We are in a position to handle worthwhile collections for private sale.
        We carry collectors items in the antique field and have catered to those desirous of putting together a worthwhile collection, and have started many new collectors as well as assisted veteran ones in the pursuit of their avocations. Many dealers and museums have also found us fair, possessing proper merchandise and knowledge of their particular needs.
        As usual we carry American and English antiques and associated items with collections of guns, pewter, mechanical banks, paperweights, historical flasks, cup plates, and 18th century pottery and porcelain. Primitive paintings have long been a specialty of ours as has native art with ethnographical specimens of all countries.
        We have, what we believe, an unusual shop, with plenty of parking space, easily accessible and just 30 minutes from the heart of New York. Just come up the West Side Drive (Henry Hudson Parkway) to the Broadway Yonkers Northbound Exit, two blocks north, and a left turn to our place. Same directions from points North. We welcome a visit from everyone.
