Hello Paul, Very interesting subject. I bought this "Bank" Candy Box off of Ebay. One of the first things I did was to reproduce the windows. I'd sure love one of your samples please. I would like to compare them.

HI Pete,

Do you have a sense of whether or not the "Bank" sign is original to the piece? What a great find... I am jealous!

Feel free to add those to your inventory if you think there will be any call for them.

Hello Paul and friends. Thank you for the offer, I have this candy box and had carefully taken a window off the Bank for the purpose of reproducing them. My hand seem to be full all the time and I never got around to reproducing them. They look great. I printed them out on the 90 year old paper and they look authentic. May I ask what program you use for your graphic projects. I especially liked that you captured the colors faithfully. I had to go check my Bank to see if this was the very one that I got off of Ebay? To answer your previous question: yes the bank sign on the fron is original as you can see on my photo. Also I've seen a third one and it too has a "Bank" sign.
