Money Boxes and Cans

   

Product Story

The intention has been to keep the forms of these money boxes simple to draw attention to the slot where coins are dropped. The colour, shape and details reference products commonly found in a workshop environment. These containers are made from turned oak.

Two of them incorporate tin cans as receptacles for the money (coins make a rewarding sound as they find a home in the cans). I have always liked the shape of tin cans and appreciated how well they work. They are rather more handsome when they have been stripped of their labels and the ribbed flanks have been exposed.

Once full of cash the cans and boxes can be emptied via access through the discreetly removable bases or via the loosening of the jubilee clips that secure the cans.
