Delight in the charm of the 1960s with this fantastic Mid-Century Modern painted chalkware Hippo Coin Bank. A whimsical survivor from the Hippie Mod era, this piece exudes the playful spirit of that time.

While the label is missing, all signs point to this being a creation of Pride Creations, a notable Japanese studio from the 1960s renowned for its iconic animal coin banks. Whether it's a lion, hippo, cat, elephant, owl, pig, or any other, their distinct style is unmistakable.

This rare aqua blue and pink Hippo Coin Bank, measuring approximately 8" long, 4" deep, and 4" tall, adds a burst of color and character to any space. Despite its age, the bank is in good vintage condition, showcasing its uniqueness with a crack on the bottom, as visible in the photo, and some minor chips/paint loss.

Own a stand-out, eye-catching piece of decor that not only serves as a functional coin bank but also tells a story of the vibrant 1960s. Embrace the nostalgia and bring a touch of whimsy to your home with this charming Mid-Century treasure.
