Vintage Ceramic Swear Jar or Cuss Box Coin Bank with Appalachian Hillbilly Motif – Made in Japan

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!

This could be an effective part of some people’s economic improvement plan!
