Four of the boxes pictured left were issued in 1926; the sales brochure described them all as being “well finished and suitable as Christmas or Birthday gifts for use as a Children’s Savings Bank”.

The box with circular door commemorated the British Empire Exhibition in 1924.

The red oval box was a later addition to the range.

Top left was a replica of Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House. And measures 4½ x 2½ x 3½ inches.

The actual Dolls’ House is amongst many items in The Royal Collection Trust at Windsor Castle (Click here) for details.
