Monkey and Parrot Tin Mechanical Bank
Saalheimer & Strauss, Germany
Place a coin in position on top of the monkey’s tail and depress the lever. The monkey bends forward, the coin rolls down into the monkey’s hand, and the parrot opens his mouth. Release the lever, the monkey rises, tossing the coin around the track and into the parrot’s closing mouth.

Walter Potter's parrot taxidermy

Walter Potter was born in 1835 in the village of Bamber in Sussex, England. After a brief schooling, he worked in his father inn, the White Lion, and pursued taxidermy as a hobby in a workshop above the stables. Potter’s first subject was his pet canary.
By the time of his death in 1918, Potter’s museum contained approximately 10,000 of his taxidermied birds and animals.

Potter’s collection of avian subjects was particularly impressive. 

Perhaps the worse figures are part of Potter’s maniacal utopian tableau called “The Happy Family” crowded with animals including cats, dogs, owls, frogs, falcons, a parrot, a monkey, a tortoise, and a piebald rat. The animals’ face are rigid and gaunt, giving no suggestion of ever having been alive, or if they were, it was not this world that they inhabited.

Potter’s fame actually rests on several large anthropomorphic works which depict squirrels, kittens, rats, and guinea pigs engaged in various human activities.
