I Always Did Spise a Mule-Bench.

Manufactured by J & E Stevenc Co, designed by James H. Bowen, patented 4/27/1897.To operate the bank, a coin is placed in the provided section underneath the seated boy. When the lever, just in front of mule’s rear legs, is pressed he kicks up and out and turns counter clockwise facing the opposite direction. In so doing, the mechanism causes the boy to fall over backward as though kicked by the mule. The coin slides into the provided slot in the base. Very fast, excellent and quite realistic. The bank must be reset for operation. The mule is manually turned around and set into position as shown in the picture and the boy is reset as shown. Very good condition.
