The Jolly Money Bank.
This would be in my guess a replica.

This item seems to be very heavy cast iron, I found it clearing out the garage. It's an item that I don't find desirable collect.
The Hand movement works, but I can hear a rattle inside when I lift it, and this might be the mechanism for the eyes and they don't roll back and the mechanism has come undone?

A little history,

Penny banks like this one were made throughout the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, right up until the 1950s. Most versions were made in America but surprisingly, many were manufactured in Britain. Surprising only for the reason that the figure clearly represents an African-American. In his smart jacket and bow tie, he typifies the black, urban ‘black minstrel’, the racist caricature that was such a fixture of white American popular culture during this period.
