MINIATURE BRITISH FIREMAN'S HELMET MONEY BOX.
This is a superb quality large size miniature British fireman's helmet measuring over 5 inches or 13cm in height and dating to about 1910, the quality and condition is outstanding. Brass helmet with comb decorated on both flat sides with dragons just like the full size helmet and the top has a slot to except coins, the helmet is fitted with cockades, chin chain and large helmet plate which is engraved, LCC LFC, which is possibly for, LONDON CITY COUNCIL LONDON FIRE BRIGADE. The base of the helmet has a door which opens so the coins can be retrieved.
