Sparedyr Fable Fish Money Bank by Kähler
Kähler's money banks exemplify unique, Danish design. They are designed to resemble so-called ‘fable fish’ and are available in three different coloured glazes. Each of the money banks have meticulously hand decorated eyes and a coin slot on their backs, while the money can be retrieved via a hole in the bottom, which is sealed with a cork plug.
In the early 1920s, Kähler’s talented artisans constantly worked to improve their technique, both in relation to forming and design as well as the development and application of glazes. It was from this creative process that the famous Sparedyr money boxes - shaped as imaginary animals, came about.
The story goes that one evening after work, Nils Kähler decided to have some fun with his assistants and began creating fun and inspiring money boxes out of ceramics as a way of honing their technique. What started as nothing more than a creative pastime became part of Kähler’s official repertoire when one day, the legendary Herman A. Kähler (Nils’ father) spotted these small ceramic creatures in the workshop and saw the potential in them.
Soon thereafter, the Sparedyr, with their beautiful colours, unique shapes and creative decorations became some of the most popular products in the history of the workshop. It is this legacy and tradition of creating different, challenging and unexpected designer objects from ceramics that the new collection is based on.
Available in Grey Blue, Yellow and Rose.
