1970s Apple Tree Moneybox

Having previously featured the owl and elephant designs, it seems only right that we also mention the Apple Tree Moneybox, another reproduction of a 1970s Danish design.

The tree looks like a typical piece of Scandinavian folk art design and has a hole in the back so you can hang it on the wall should you wish. There are two options available, either a green tree with red apples or a red tree with yellow apples.

The moneybox costs £8.95 from Hus and Hem.
