Retro Images of the Week: KFC Colonel Sanders Bank
Here at Retroplanet.com we are surrounded by all things retro. Not only the things we sell but original items and collections that decorate our offices. We thought it might be interesting each week to bring you a photo and information of an interesting, and maybe unusual, retro item we have kicking around. Please note these items are not for sale.
This is an interesting item. It’s a plastic Col. Sanders bank from 1972. These were promotional items distributed by Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises. The base reads. “Col. Sanders”. These banks were originally white, with just the colonel’s tie painted black. This one was painted at some point in it’s past. It measures about 9 inches tall and was made by the Margardt Corp. of Los Angeles, California.
