An unusual collection of money saving boxes in the form of gold-tooled books. Each box is made of leather-covered steel, with panels of brass along the facing sides, one of which can be unlocked and removed to access the money inside. A sprung-toothed slot in their side allows coins to be deposited, and a round hole in the bottom allows rolled bank notes to similarly deposited. The single original key can open any of them.

This patented design was manufactured for Lloyds Bank by Taylor Law & Co. Ltd. Birmingham. The bank's logo design on the front of the boxes suggests that they date from the 1920s.

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
