Adorable vintage blow mold brown bear piggy bank by Reliable Toys, Canada. The bear has its original stopper with some marks around it from being used and opened. The bear is a light red-brown & white with the bear having its paw in its mouth. The bear is in good condition with no chips or cracks, it does have some paint wear and it's nose has a small indent, please see photos. The bear measures about 10.25" tall x about 6" wide and about 5.75" deep. A great vintage and Canadian toy to still be used or to have as display.
About Reliable Toys Canada; Reliable Toy Company was founded in 1920 under the original Canadian Statuary and Novelty Company on Queen Street in Toronto, Ontario. In 1922 under new partnership the name was changed to Reliable Toy Company. By 1935, Reliable became the largest toy factory in the British Empire. Reliable got a head start in the plastic industry, especially in the manufacture of plastic dolls, and led the field for years, partly due to their experience with the technology of injection moulding to create small plastic items for the Canadian government during the war.Reliable merged with another Canadian toy manufacturer Viceroy Manufacturing Company (date unknown).
