Another great piece of tinplate from a previous auction @ Croton's own SeriousToyz.com: the Animated "Elephant Bank", 1930s, J. Chein, 5", tin; trunk flipped up to deposit coin; it sold for $196.
We're always pleased to help identify a piece of vintage Christmas when we can.

You have 1940 Glo-Lite Yule birds! Lucky you! With thanks to collector MarkP for the info.
