Does anyone know anything about this weird rooster man coin bank?

Photos I got it at an antique mall. The tag just said "ROOSTER MAN" with no other information. The human face is on a little spring and bounces around when you poke it. I can't find any manufacturer or brand markings on it. It's very heavy (about 3 lbs). I really love my little rooster man and I want to know more about it. Thanks!

Best answer: Sorry to have to tell you, but it's not an antique. It is very cute though!

Best answer: It looks like a Design Toscano product on Amazon. Apparently inspired by the Canterbury Tales.

The one I linked to is a replica, I guess, so yours might be older. No likely, but...

Response by poster: anything is possible in this big beautiful world but it does look exactly like the one on Amazon

Well, if it’s a replica, I would be very similar. I found some antique designs, but it wasn’t the same style.
