Love the Williamsburgh Savings Bank but don't think you can afford the condos (thanks, conversion!)? Well, you're in luck, because for the next eight days, someone on eBay is auctioning a cool "Williamsburg Brooklyn Ceramic Savings Bank "!

his item up for bid is a 7" high ceramic piggy bank depicting the bank, a really fantastic item. Slot for coins, twist-off reservoir, brass attachment for chained pen (not included). This bank is circa 1960's, and in addition to the "Williamsburgh Savings Bank" writing, "Tower of Strength" and "Central Office Tower" appear on different sides of the base.

There are a few more pictures on the eBay page and we cannot believe there are no bids on it yet (they start at $19.99). [Via reader Eve - thanks so much!]

And Gothamist on the bank's last days, plus Wikipedia and Forgotten-NY on WSB.
