I have no idea why Borden’s Elsie the Cow mascot is not more popular. Maybe we were just big milk fans in my house, but we had a bunch of Elsie stuff lying around. Mostly glasses and mugs and certainly nothing as awesome as this vinyl bank. Elsie says, “Save your money for Milk.” The bank is currently being sold at Hake’s and I think would look great in any retro kitchen. If you need to build on the theme, Hake’s has a bunch of Elsie stuff for sale.
According to Hake’s:
4” round base by 9.5” tall. c. 1950s. Vinyl figural head of smiling Elsie with accents on eyes, eyelashes, mouth, daisy necklace. Original plastic plug trap. Back of base has Borden Co. copyright mark in reverse image as made.
