This is a quaint vintage ceramic swear jar, or ‘Cuss Box’ coin bank with an Appalachian hillbilly motif that was made in Japan. This penny bank is molded like a cross cut section of pine tree with pine cones decorating it, as well as the following poem:

Cuss Box
Cussin ain’t the nicest thing
And friends fer you it shore don’t bring
But, if you really gotta sayem
Heres the way you hafta payem!
