POW Money Box

You place an old penny on either soldier’s head, the lead weight at the figure’s base counterbalances the penny and thus the figure leans forward inserting the coin into the slot.  This is a wonderful piece of POW treen in our opinion, and we feel you will not see the like elsewhere, of true museum piece and work of art.

Description

We are proud to offer one of the most unique Prisoner of War “POW” Art examples of museum quality. A Late 19th Century POW Treen animated money box which is hand carved with two pendulum weighted soldier figures at it base. This POW object is rare due to its condition and functionality.

How it works: You place an old penny on either soldier’s head, the lead weight at the figure’s base counterbalances the penny and thus the figure leans forward inserting the coin into the slot.  This is a wonderful piece of POW treen in our opinion, and we feel you will not see the like elsewhere, of true museum piece and work of art.

What Our Customers Say

I stumbled across The House of Antiques store after following them on Instagram. Having the need to source unusual visual items for my job I noticed something that would work perfectly for our next set design.

Being based overseas I thought dealing with a UK based company would be a logistical nightmare. This was not my experience, They were quick to respond, answered all my questions and had the item delivered right on time (fantastic job guys).

Truly amazing bunch of guys, offering amazing objects, who obviously love what they do.
