Object is not a bank, nor toy. It is a dispenser for rolls of stamps. Top was for a wet sponge to moisten glue on stamp.

Thank you for your comment. You are correct, the object is actually a stamp dispenser and was miscatalogued. I have made the corrections in our database and they will appear on the website shortly. We appreciate your vigilance!
