Mug - Elischer, State Savings Bank of Victoria, 1970s Object Reg. No: HT 34646

A promotional mug made by Elischer for the State Savings Bank of Victoria.

Keith's collection not only provides insight into one man's working life, it also covers some important periods in Australian banking history, including the introduction of cheque accounts, the opening of small branches across the State, and the adoption of decimal currency.
Tankard style, pottery, dark-olive green glaze. The two sides moulded with a relief map of Victoria and the initials SSB.
