Totally Awesome Retired bank from Fitz and Floyd, entitled "Bank Rolls Bank".
Retired in the 70's, and dated through a Roman Numeral 1978...this is a
beautiful and rare collectible. It is in Mint Condition, with nothing to report.
I cannot find one anywhere to compare it to, and I am confident I am leaving
money on the table. However, my loss is your gain! I love this piece and am
proud to offer it in my shop. It measures approximately 4 1/2" across, 5"
hight, and 8 1/2" long. Again, it is perfect. Even still, it has the original
hand painted stick on it!!
Anyway, please look at the other items in the shop, as we DO combine shipping.
Also, please come back often, as I will be adding items daily. If you want an
exact shipping quote, please convo me your postal code/zip, and I will get that
for you! Especially important if you are from another country! Tell me your
postal code, and country, and I will adapt the listing for you to make the
purchase! I am sorry, but we do not ship to the Phillipines,or Italy.
Thanks and enjoy your purchase!

Fitz and Floyd was established in Dallas in 1960, by founders Pat Fitzpatrick
and Bob Floyd. It started off as an import company, but soon progressed to the
design and sale of ceramic giftware and tabletop products and accessories. By
the start of the 1970s, the company had several popular hand-painted ceramic
gift lines in production. Fitz and Floyd collectibles are known for their
intricate, imaginative designs that vary from humorous to elegant pieces. The
company's products are so popular that the city of Dallas commissioned Fitz and
Floyd to make a one-of-a-kind tea service for Queen Elizabeth as a gift during
her 1991 visit.
Although Fitz and Floyd items have been popular with collectors since the
range first became available, special editions and limited production
collector's items were first produced in 1990. This includes teapots,
ornaments, and figurines made of resin, glass, and ceramics. Collectibles also
include boxes, decorative plates, eggs, water globes, houses, cookie jars,
ceramic giftware, dinnerware, tableware, and decorative accessories. In the
1970s, Fitz and Floyd was the first company to create mix-and-match dinnerware
with varied, but complementary, designs or colors in one pattern line. The
product lines created by Fitz and Floyd are too numerous to list, and most
collectors focus on specific themes rather than specific lines.
