Vintage J. Chein Tin Litho metal toy church bank, has printing on one side “Out of Love to our Savior”, another side “God Loveth a Cheerful Giver”, and on the front church steeple “Day by Day a Penny a Meal”. The bank is marked with the red, white, and blue label, J. Chein & Co., Made in U.S.A. on the bottom. I estimate that it dates to the 1930’s? This bank is in very nice vintage used condition, with lovely detail throughout. The tin lithograph colors are still vibrant, in red, green, and gold. There is some paint loss, and there are some scratches and a little rust here and there, and some minor bends and dents. I do Not have the key for this bank, and I did not attempt to open the bank. There are some barely visible hand written numbers on the top of the church tower (see photo). The bank measures about 3 ¼” by about 3”, and is about 3 7/8” tall to the top of the church steeple.
